Rumor: Fortnite coming to Switch, will have exclusive content

According to SuperData, Fortnite generated $223 million in revenue in March alone, making it the game's best month yet. The game has surpassed the previous biggest thing in battle royale, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, in both active players and popularity on streaming platforms like Twitch.

A start date for Fortnite Season 4 has not yet been confirmed, but Season 3 will be wrapping up on May 3rd. The fact that Season 4 is coming isn't a new idea or unique in itself, but it's the image alongside the announcement that's causing a commotion. On other platforms, this mode allows up to four players to team up online, but the Switch version is slated to support local play between four consoles (which will apparently play as a large part of the port's selling point in promotional material).

Since the beginning of April, players have noted the meteor sitting up in the sky (see the red arrow), but nobody knows what it will mean for the game. However, after the success of "Battlegrounds" and the battle royale genre, and "Fortnite's" own take on it, the game's taken over the pop-culture lexicon.

Videos have surface from numerous players showing flying objects coming down from the sky and exploding on impact on the Battle Royale map, but it is unclear what exactly they are doing - if anything. Hold tight, and stay out of Tilted Towers! Whether the meteor crashes into the map at the same time or slightly before is naturally of interest. That seems to be the case, and with all of the hype now surrounding the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War, it makes a lot of sense that Epic would go with a superhero theme. Whatever happens, it looks like it will arrive in just a few days.
