Erebus Isn’t The PlayStation 5 Code Name Says Fortnite Dev

One of developers of Fortnite on Switch has claimed that the code Erebus, which was discovered in the latest build of Unreal engine, is not the code name for PlayStation 5, instead it was the code name for the unannounced Switch version of Fortnite.

Hmmmm. Let’s take a look at that section of code again.


Shall we play a game of odd one out? Which of these does not belong:

  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Linux
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Switch
  • Other
  • Fortnite on Nintendo Switch

Either Arjan Brussee – who works on Fortnite, which is owned by Epic, who create Unreal Engine – is telling porkies, or the code for Unreal Engine is utter bobbins. The code clearly states Erebus is “OSS_Platform_Name” and there’s already an entry for Switch.

If that really is just for Fortnite on Switch that’s some terrible coding.
