And where does Nanzer go? This makes the story really spicy, as it wasn’t long before Epic Games confirmed that Nanzer had joined them to Fortnite deal with the competitive part. Compared to Overwatch, the game is still in its infancy in terms of esport (its popularity is already huge, of course), but they hope to use Nanzer to achieve an even more professional garnish.
