A fresh map for Fortnite: Battle Royale isn’t high on the agenda at the moment, according to Fortnite: Battle Royale design lead Eric Williamson.
While parts of Fortnite’s vast audience continue to speculate about the possibly of new maps, and competing battle royale juggernaut PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the process of adding its third map, Williamson said there’s no currently no rush to add another map.
“We’ve talked a bit about this internally,” Williamson explained to IGN’s Expert Mode. “We just had the big map update and we learned a lot through that process.”
“There’s no urgency for us to create a new map right now. It’s not a priority right now, whereas continuing to evolve and make the map feel fresh is something we’re very excited and interested about. So stay tuned; we have some interesting ideas.”
It would seem a big change to the current map is imminent with evidence mounting that part of it is doomed to be destroyed by what appears to be an approaching meteor.
