Insanely popular battle royale title Fortnite could be getting a competitive mode if a new report is to be believed. It claims that Epic Games is developing a competitive mode for Fortnite. The possibility has come up after data miners dug deep into the new Fortnite updates in a bid to reveal unannounced skins, features, and additional content. They feel that a competitive mode is in the pipeline over at Epic Games.

The game files for Fortnite have folders for each game mode. They even contain folders for limited time modes such as the one with Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War. When the latest patch is applied, a new folder is spotted which is only named Comp which might be short for Competitive.

To some, this might seem like a stretch and wishful thinking but given that this folder has been found where the folders for all game modes are, it hints at the possibility of this title getting its first competitive mode.

The new folder only has a solo variant which might mean that Epic Games could only release a competitive solo first before expanding it to duos and squads. Epic Games hasn’t confirmed anything about this so far which means that we’ll have to wait in order to find out whether or not Fortnite is actually getting a competitive mode.
