What Ever Happened to Fortnite? Was the Ultimate Zombie Survival Game Cancelled?

Fortnite - Next-Gen

For those who aren’t aware, a promising game by the name of Fortnite perhaps could have been the best zombies-themed survival game concept of all time. In the initial concept pitched to the gaming public by publisher Epic Games, Players create their own home base during the day and once night breaks all hell breaks loose as you and your crew must defend yourselves against oncoming onslaughts of Zombies and other strange creatures that descend upon your fortress from the darkness.

Say what you want about the art style shown in the 2011 teaser trailer Epic released (seen at the bottom), but the gameplay concepts promised were certainly revolutionary. A persistent world vision was laid out only to be cast aside with little to no word about what the title’s fate would become. Just when you thought Fortnite was gone for good Epic Games has put the word out that they are still creating the game and after being originally invented as an Xbox 360 exclusive, it will likely be heading to next-generation Xbox ONE and might even arrive on PlayStation 4 as well as Windows PC.

Fortnite has been rebuilt for the Unreal 4 Engine and the videos seen below are not representative of the next-gen version, but still interesting to see how scavenging an open world for resources to build with was envisioned by Epic Games.
