New Rumors Suggest a Sports Mode Is Coming to Fortnite
Rumors have begun to circulate that a brand-new Sports Mode is coming to Fortnite. Here’s everything you need to know.
After the huge success of the LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival game modes, it’s no surprise that fans are hoping for more. Fortunately, rumors have begun to circulate claiming that a Sports Mode featuring basketball and soccer games is on its way. Below, we explain this unfolding situation.
It is likely that a Sports Mode will be coming to Fortnite. Fans believe that a tease during the Big Bang event confirms that a Sports Mode is on the way. During the Big Bang Fortnite event, players were sucked into a multiverse dimension with items flying by them. Eagle-eyed fans spotted basketballs and footballs among those items, proceeded by musical instruments and then the LEGO llama. It has led many to believe that a Sports Mode is on its way, as the Big Bang event predominantly promoted future content such as the LEGO Fortnite and Rocket Racing modes. You can see the exact moment the basketball hoops and football appear in the video below:
Of course, it’s also worth noting that a basketball minigame mode was leaked during the Epic Games vs Apple trial in 2021. It promised the ability to “create arcade style basketball mini games” that moved “past the simple toy functionality” and promised a “Fortnite version of arcade basketball.” While that mode never came to fruition, it could have been that it is being developed into a much bigger mode.
Nevertheless, it’s worth taking all of this with a great big grain of salt. While Fortnite does tend to tease new modes and mechanics in this way, it doesn’t mean that fully-fledged basketball and soccer modes are on their way.
