The esports tournament organiser and production company, BLAST has signed a partnership renewal with the game developer, Epic Games.
Following the extension, BLAST will be seen continuing its assistance to the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS).
The partnership renewal will look to bring more competition and edge-of-the-seat Fortnite events that will happen in 2023. This will also include the three Majors and the Global Championship. The Global Championship is all set to be hosted by Copenhagen, Denmark.
BLAST is a Denmark-based esports organiser and production entity that organises various exciting esports tournaments all around the world. The company aims to elevate esports, taking it to the next level of global entertainment.
Leo Matlock, MD of Development at BLAST, said, “Extending and expanding the BLAST and Competitive Fortnite partnership into a third year is testament to the brilliant progress that has been made with FNCS over the last few years. We are really proud of the journey we’ve been on with the Competitive Fortnite team and how we have been able to support them in elevating the FNCS fan experience by focusing on player-led storylines and fan-first production techniques. 2023 is turning out to be another thrilling year, Major One has already been completed from the BLAST Copenhagen studios and we’re excited to deliver the remaining three FNCS events with a combined prize pool of US$8 million on the line.
He further commented, “We look forward to building on last year’s unforgettable return to Fortnite in-person events for the FNCS Invitational in Raleigh, North Carolina by bringing the year-defining FNCS Global Championship to our hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark for fans and players to enjoy later this year”.
