Epic is poised to unleash a number of changes to Fortnite, all focussed on improving matchmaking within the game’s Battle Royale mode.
By the developer’s own admission, its matchmaking strategy has “remained mostly unchanged” across its core modes since launch in 2017. However, when Fortnite’s next update arrives, Epic will be introducing improved matchmaking logic, designed to group players of similar skill levels together and create fairer games.
These changes will be rolled out slowly across all regions following the release of Fortnite’s 10.40 update, which should arrive some time this week. Epic says it will be monitoring and testing their impact so that tweaks can be made in future updates as required.
