A TVOS reference was found buried in the the game’s code. But it has nothing to do with a port of the game.
Update 2:58 p.m. ET: We received a statement from Epic saying it’s not planning to bring Fortnite to Apple TV. “References to TVOS in the Fortnite files are the result of general Unreal Engine support for the Apple TV platform.” The Unreal Engine is a popular game-development platform.
The original story follows.
Apple TV is one of the few platforms left that insanely popular battle royale gamehasn’t yet conquered. But it might be landing on there, if the reference to “TV OS” found in the game’s code presages support.
Fortnite leaker Storm posted a screenshot on Twitter showing the reference buried in the text translation of the hexadecimal code.
