Overwatch League commissioner leaves to head competitive 'Fortnite'

If it wasn't already apparent that Epic Games is serious about competitive Fortnite, it is now.

It's not certain just how Nanzer will shape Fortnite esports, although it's likely to be significant when he was the one who got Overwatch League off the ground.
