By Chris WanstrathThe online multiplayer game, which was released for PC and Mac in 2017, has sold millions of copies worldwide and has been viewed by millions of people every month since its launch in 2016.
Now, the developers of Fortnites are hoping to make their return to the market with a new game for mobile devices, but it is not yet clear if the game will be as successful as its predecessor.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Fortnits creators Epic Games have been in discussions with mobile gaming giants Apple and Google about a new Fortnit game for smartphones.
The game will focus on “social” gameplay and players will be able to connect with other players via chat channels, but there are also plans to introduce online multiplayer functionality, according to the report.
It is unclear if the developers will continue to make the game for the mobile platforms, or if it will instead continue to focus on the PC version, where it has been popular.
However, the game was developed at Epic’s home studio in Irvine, California.
Epic released the game on Android, iOS and Windows platforms, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, in 2018.
Fortnits launched in late 2016, and sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
It was released in September 2017.
