If you were hoping to watch Friday Fortnite on August 16th, you’re going to be disappointed. Keemstar announced just a few hours before the event was supposed to start that it will not be taking place. He said a few big-name teams dropped out late, so he decided to scrap the event all together. Due to a few big teams dropping out last min & I was already short a few teams & didn’t get chance to fill cus I was away on bussniess. We are canceling today’s #FridayFortnite! Please send all ur hate mail to @rickyberwick! He has nothing to do with this but it will be funny. pic.twitter.com/rRik06EL5v— KEEM 🍿 (@KEEMSTAR) August 16, 2019In addition to the August 16th event being canceled, Keemstar announced a long delay for Friday Fortnite in whole. Due to the top gamers practicing for the Fortnite Champion Series, many of them will be unavailable for the smaller Friday Fortnite event.Damn , Epic is doing Trio event for 5 weeks so #FridayFortnite won’t return till September 27th!!! Going to focus all my energy on #MinecraftMonday for next 5 weeks!!! pic.twitter.com/okx2B6oDL0— KEEM 🍿 (@KEEMSTAR) August 16, 2019A follower asked why not just move the event to a different day, but Keemstar says Friday is the only day that makes sense. So we won’t see the return of Friday Fortnite until nearly October. “When Friday Fortnite returns 9/27 it’s going to be huge due to the players & viewers love of the event,” Keemstar tweeted. “We stopped for a whole year and came back pulling 11 mill unique viewers weekly!” “On top of it big teams dropping out last [minute] I had to make the call to cancel instead of giving the viewers a less than ideal #FridayFortnite today,” Keemstar said on Twitter.
