fortnite: Online games ‘FORTNITE’ and ‘DESTINY 2’ will soon cross paths

Fortnite is a video game released for online game lovers in 2017. Developed by Epic Games, this game was available in 3 different versions. Another famous online game developed by Bungie, an American video company, is “Destiny”. Released in 2017, ‘Destiny’ is a multiplayer video game. It is an FPS (First Person Shooter) video game that is loved by the online gaming community. The foresight of Bungie’s game developers is appreciable, as the next ten-year plan was part of their thought process when they created this online masterpiece.

Three versions of Fortnite are: 1. Fortnite Battle Royale – free-to-play battle royale game, 2. Fortnite: Save the World – a co-op hybrid tower defense and survival game, 3. Fortnite Creative – freedom to create your worlds and battle arenas

Fortnite is available on multiple platforms, from Windows to Android. In addition, this online game is entitled to multiple nominations and awards. Fortnite’s evolution and update cycles were continuously improvised for about six long years, regardless of its worldwide popularity.

Times are changing

The way we play has changed over the years, from tables to virtual reality to augmented reality. It’s also estimated to reach a massive $196 billion in revenue by 2022. And it doesn’t have a long history either.


Although video game prototypes were created as early as the 1950s, the first game consoles weren’t introduced to consumers until the 1970s. But they really took off in the 1990s, as the Internet slowly start to become ubiquitous.

Main milestones

  • 1990s: Online gaming rapidly gains popularity due to the increasing availability of the Internet
  • 2004: World of Warcraft launches, the first massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, surpassing 10 million active subscriptions
  • 2009: Minecraft is released and becomes one of the best-selling video games in history with 176 million copies sold.
  • 2016: Augmented reality game Pokémon Go is released, generating the most revenue of any mobile game in its first month.

All hail the future

Mobile is the largest gaming platform, with revenue of $68.5 billion in 2019, 45% of the total market which also includes PC and tablet games. Although still a relatively new segment of the industry, mobile gaming has developed at an astonishing rate, with 2.4 billion people playing mobile games in 2019.

Game personalities

In the future, games could automatically generate game content that is customized to fit each player’s personality and play style, based on their player data. They could also use your personality traits to create complex game profiles.

These two prominent online games “Fortnite” and “Destiny” are bound to cross paths, according to the latest tweet shared by GinsorKR, a data mining vanguard. It is noted that many Fortnite skins are incorporated into Destiny 2.

Fortnite skins are really beautiful, but the developers of the game are wondering: how will the game developed by Bungie add Fortnite skins?

Destiny 2 is an FPS and offers specific perks for individual armor. Whether this crossover is for cosmetics or a larger quest is still unclear. However, rumors say that Fortnite will take some content from Destiny 2, but the specifications and details are not officially announced.

The new strategy of these two online games, ‘Fortnite’ and ‘Destiny 2’, seems to exchange content. Mod radar and sequels are still questionable factors, which will be revealed soon. The promotion of the latest movie or game would be a great event to witness.

Let me conclude with a gentle disclaimer that there are no official announcements of game production units yet. If not all, some details may be wrong, so we eagerly await official statements on this matter.
