In a short blog post made this morning by Epic Games, the company announced they would be providing $100 million for Fornite esports tournament prize money. To clarify, this $100 million figure is for just prize pools in the first year of Fortnite as a competitive esports and does not include money spent on advertizing.

This prize pool is by far the largest esports pool to date and firmly solidifies Epic’s entry into esports. We will expect to hear more regarding the rollout as E3 approaches.
