The publisher pointed out that its desire is to hold only online events under foreseeable circumstances, and even expand to the largest annual events in the Fortnite calendar, such as the Fortnite World Cup.

Epic announced in its blog: “Our goal is to finally host a global face-to-face competition again, but the top priority of any such event we do is the health and safety of players and employees.”
“Since little is known about practicality and safety, we do not plan to hold live events in 2021, including the Fortnite World Cup. We will continue to provide online games throughout 2021, hoping that some form of sports events can be used in the future. Reappear at some point.”

Due to logistics issues that do not seem to need to be considered when organizing sports events, the team will be able to focus more on hosting more online sports events throughout the year. The publisher pointed out that it looks forward to “hosting more weekly contests, unique contests and creator cups throughout the year.”
