What prompted Nick, Tfue, Cloakzy, and Tim to return to Fortnite?
Before speculating on Fortnite’s future, it is important to understand the reason behind the comeback of the veterans. The first noticeable entity to return to Fortnite was Tfue, while he played in a competitive tournament in Twitch Rivals.
However, his return to the game was just a promotional event as he later clarified that he’s not excited to actually play the game.
Following Tfue, several big names like FaZe Nickmercs, TimTheTatman, and Cloakzy also returned to Fortnite. Apparently, Nickmercs and TimTheTatman played the game because of SyhperPK’s efforts, and it was a delight to watch the famous trio play together after such a long time.
Unlike Tfue, all the other returning v buck generator veterans have enjoyed their comebacks. Interestingly, Nickmercs and Cloakzy even promised their fans they’ll grind for FNCS.
Is Fortnite’s return a result of Call of Duty Warzone’s failure?
Earlier this year, a majority of the aforementioned content creators quit Fortnite for alternatives like Call of Duty: Warzone. However, the trend seems to be changing, yet again.
Just like Fortnite, the content creators are now critical of hackers in Warzone. The strong SBMM system in Call of Duty’s latest title Black Ops Cold War also worsens the situation. Upon considering these factors, the reason behind the return of these content creators is self-evident.
However, the biggest question about Fortnite’s future still remains. Owing to its massive brand value, the Marvel-themed season has also been one of the best seasons in the game, but assuming Fortnite’s future on it would be an exaggeration.

In hindsight, a single good season and some veterans might not be enough for the return of Fortnite. Having said that, a similar approach by Epic games for the following seasons could actually result in the game coming back to its glory.
