Fortnite has become one of the world’s most popular games, and Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins wants it to stay there.
The streaming sensation became an internet superstar when Fortnite released, with his excellent gameplay and hilarious antics propelling him to the top of Twitch, where he has stayed ever since.
And while some have grown tired and frustrated with the popular battle royale title, Ninja is still a huge fan of the game, and wants to see it remain as one of the top games in the world.
Since Fortnite Battle Royale released in September 2017, it has broken countless records and won plenty of awards, and is nominated for another four gongs at The 2018 Game Awards on Thursday, December 6.
However, Ninja believes that fans of the game need to trust Epic Games and their decisions if they want to game to remain on top.
“All [Epic] have to do, is continue to reinvest in the continued success of their game and not sell out and choke with updates, and this game will be on top for a very long time,” stated Blevins.
“As long as the skins, the dances and all the emote and stuff stays fresh with pop culture, whatever’s hot, everyone’s going to keep buying those things.”
Ninja went to to discuss the negativity that he sees from Fortnite pro players and fellow streamers, a topic he has been vocal about in the past.
“Always voice your opinion, but there’s so many people so quick to just jump on the negative bandwagon” he explained, “guess what, you’re still going to play the game, so why tear it apart? I’ve seen it happen too many times, where people just completely destroy the game that they love.”
While Ninja refrained from naming the games he was talking about, it’s likely that he was talking about H1Z1 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – two titles he has been critical of in the past.
However, with fans of Fortnite buzzing in anticipation ahead of the start of Season 7 on Thursday, December 6, it seems the pop culture juggernaut that is Fortnite won’t be slowing down any time soon. What do you think Epic Games needs to do to keep Fortnite successful? Let us know!
