The gaming community went into a frenzy following the announcement by Epic Games that Fortnite: Battle Royale will have a $100 million prize pool between 2018 and 2019 for esports competition.

In a shocking reveal, Epic Games announced on May 21st that Fortnite: Battle Royale will receive a $100 million prize pool between 2018 and 2019 for various esports tournaments and competitions.

A sanctioned tournament has still yet to be held for the Battle Royale game since its release in 2017, with the genre as a whole still being relatively new when it comes to esports due to the 'randomness' of loot and other in-game aspects.

Although many thought that the announcement included some sort of typo, it later settled in that the title will actually include such a massive sum of money, leading to a number of different reactions from gaming community members across the board.
