The Fortnite World Cup finals will take place in New York City on July 26 – 28. Epic Games has not released details on the format for the final weekend. If formatted like previous tournaments, one day will be for solos, the other day for duos, and finals for both on the last day. Until the official announcement, this is simply speculation.

Unless Epic Games decides to delay the release of a new season, the tournament will spread across three different seasons. Thirty days remain in Season 8. Season 9 will start before week 5 of the tournament. Each season lasts about 70 days, 10 weeks per season, which means Season 10 will start the week before the World Cup Finals! There will be many changes throughout the tournament. Epic Games has shown they are not afraid to implement major changes before a tournament.
