Fortnite fans have been requesting the return of Arena Duos for some time now, with petitions popping up and subreddits filling with nostalgia at the fun that was had. Up until now, developer Epic Games has stayed silent, refusing to give in to the increasing demand.

Arena Duos is coming back to Fortnite. According to a tweet from the official Fortnite Competitive account, the Arena Duos mode will return to the game once the @FNCompetitive account has hit a million Followers.

At the time of writing, @FNCompetitive has now achieved one million Followers. This should mean Arena Duos is coming back to Fortnite.

When is Arena Duos coming back to Fortnite?

As for when exactly Arena Duos will make its return to Fortnite Battle Royale, it’s not clear. While the official account promised to bring it back, it never said when.
