At 15 years old, Wolfiez pleasantly surprised his family with his Fortnite World Cup 2nd-place run.

Wolfiez journey to Red Bull Gaming

As a runner-up in the 2019 Fortnite World Cup for Duos, Wolfiez and his partner at the time Dave ‘Rojo’ Jong earned $2.25 million among the two. Since then, Wolfiez has managed to stay among the top Fortnite earners with a career haul of about $1.35 million.

The World Cup did wonders to boost Wolfiez’s name in the space. Now with Red Bull, the young Fortnite competitor is excited to go even further with a brand that represents worldwide talents like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, and Max Verstappen.

But his new sponsors will contribute to a work ethic and system that the Excel pro has been developing for years. While anyone can pick up the sticks to compete in Fortnite, Wolfiez plans to keep himself at the top by honing his skills and growing his brand.

Wolfiez is ready for the next phase of his Fortnite career with Red Bull Gaming.

“I was just a competitive player, and it kind of just came to me, you know,” he said. “I was good at the game, people want to watch the best of the best, so people come to me. And you don’t really treat it as a business, I was like: ‘oh, I’m just gonna play the game. I’ll do what I want to do and people will watch anyway.’

“But if you want to start taking it to the next level, you have to treat it as a business. Get a schedule right, start organizing everything around you.”

When he qualified for the World Cup, Wolfiez’s family was taken aback by their son announcing he was “going to New York.”

As the newest face of Red Bull Gaming, he is looking to surprise even more people by getting better and becoming an even greater force in Fortnite.
