The excitement of gamers is turning away from Fortnite to Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4.

VIDEO gamers throughout the world are getting ready to ditch Fortnite for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is set to launch tomorrow.

Fans of Fortnite have even taken to social media to broadcast their plans, with many predicting the “death” of the massively popular battle royale game.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 includes three zombie maps from its release day.

Another multiplayer first-person shooter, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the long-awaited successor to 2015’s Black Ops III.

It will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC from midnight, and it will feature a battle royale mode that some gamers think will be enough for it to end Fortnite’s long summer of popularity.

“Dear Fortnite, It was fun while it lasted but Black Ops 4 drops midnight. Your time has came to an end,” wrote one gamer on Twitter.

And while Fortnite enjoyed over 100 million iPhone downloads alone at the peak of its popularity, even some diehard fans of the game are preparing to dump it in favour of Black Ops 4.

Even hardcore Fortnite fans are gearing up for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4

Such comments come as Fortnite experiences a downturn in its rapid growth, with some analysts expecting the UK to reach “peak Fortnite” by Christmas.

This scenario is possible, since sales of the game grew only by 2 per cent in July, having risen by 10 per cent in June and a whopping 30 per cent in May.

And there has also been something of a backlash against the game in recent months from parents and non-gaming adults alike.

Distressed mothers have spoken out against their offsprings’ addictions to Fortnite, while even Prince Harry advised pupils not to play it during an October visit to Sussex.

Such warnings might not be enough on their own to persuade gamers to leave Fortnite alone.

However, it would seem from the hype for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 that they might turn away from it for other reasons, at least for now.
