Surprised they didn't choose Vulkan for its much wider platform support. Which is critical to Fortnite.

Well, Vulkan requires a translation layer to work on MacOS and Epic has shown no interest in Linux support so far. I'd imagine that the game already uses Vulkan on Android.

My guess would be that Epic wants to improve its engine's DirectX 12 implementation and bringing it to Fortnite is a good start towards that goal.

The layer hardly matters when you could run one API for multiple platforms. Just makes more sense. Everything but Xbox could use it only because MS forces a version of dx12.

I know it's because they already have dx12 but they should still add better engine support so people using the engine have a choice. It's a product afterall
