However, not much information has been made public by the developer in regards to esports competition, including events, private match capability, and more.

As with highly competitive games runs by highly competitive game publishers, Fortnite is getting its own tourney with a $100,000,000 prize pool.
We presume this "free" version of Fortnite is the Battle Royale edition served up on all the other platforms without cost. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime promised "the full Fortnite experience" to players.
At one point, the slow play even elicited a call for a format change from broadcaster Kassie "Gloom" Isabelle.
