Fortnite has been making waves in the industry with its recent removal from the iOS and Android stores, and Epic’s legal war on Apple and Google following that, but it seems it may have now spilled the beans on when we can exactly expect the upcoming duo of next-gen consoles to land.
Fortnite will be receiving a Batman (or Joker, to be more specific) themed bundle soon, called The Last Laugh Bundle, which will include various in-game cosmetics. It will be receiving both digital and physical purchases, and in a post talking about its upcoming release, Epic have seemingly narrowed down the time frame for when we can expect the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The post mentions that it will be out on November 17 for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. But then, interestingly enough, it goes on to specifically say that it will “also arrive in time for the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X next-generation consoles”- which means that both consoles will be available either on or before that date.
Neither Sony nor Microsoft have specifically mentioned the release dates of their consoles. Microsoft, however, have said that theirs will arrive in November (Sony have still only officially given the “Holiday 2020” timeframe), while a recent controller leak suggested that the Xbox Series X will be releasing on November 6.
Information on both is supposedly coming soon, with leaks suggesting that PS5 news will be coming this month, and Xbox Series X info some time in September, so hopefully we’ll get concrete word on their release dates sooner rather than later.
