Since a technical test back in 2015, we haven't heard much about Fortnite, Epic's take on both tower-defense shooters and Minecraft. At this year's Game Developers Conference, we finally got something: a release year.
As PC Gamer reports, Epic Games co-founder Tim Sweeney mentioned the game would be out "in the year ahead." The comment was dropped somewhat offhandedly, but a representative confirmed to PC Gamer that 2017 was in fact the correct date for the game.
