Epic won’t support Fortnite on Steam Deck, says Tim Sweeney

Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, described the Steam Deck in 2021 as an “incredible move by Valve”, praising it as “an open platform where users are free to install any software or software they choose”. But he recently delivered some bad news to Fortnite fans hoping to play the battle royale game on Steam Deck, saying Epic has no plans to update it for handheld.

Fortnite isn’t on Steam, but it should still be able to run on Steam Deck, which despite the moniker being an open platform handheld, you can do whatever you want with it. It’s a little Linux PC, if you want to treat it this way.
