Fortnite's commitment to its creative mode is unwavering, as demonstrated in this Wednesday's major announcement, showcasing the overwhelming success of Creative 2.0 since the introduction of Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN).

In just a year, this initiative has generated a staggering $320 million in revenue for players who have crafted various experiences.

Now, the scope of enabling diverse gameplay modes extends even further. Epic Games' immediate move is to expand the Creative Mode not only to LEGO Fortnite, allowing players to craft their experience islands, but also to create circuits for Rocket Racing.

However, this is just the beginning. Epic Games also revealed that future seasons of the battle royale will be built using UEFN, marking a groundbreaking shift that opens up an entirely new universe for creators. This transition is set to kick off in late 2025.

While some view this move with concern, fearing it may be a significant step back for the company, it's quite the contrary. Rather than abandoning a comprehensive engine with endless possibilities, the goal is to empower both the team and creators with enhanced tools for the future.

Epic Games elaborated on the evolution of Unreal Editor for Fortnite, stating, "By using UEFN ourselves, we can enhance the features needed for a Battle Royale season and create tools for creators to push the boundaries of their experiences." This approach ensures that as they step into the shoes of creators, the tools developed for Epic Games' team expand the features available to all creators.

"UEFN aims to reach a point where entire Battle Royale seasons can be created that are as thrilling as the current Chapter 5 - Season 2, solely using the new tools offered by Creative Mode," they further explained on social media, addressing queries from various users.
