Olympic esports tournament adds Fortnite, but not any Fortnite mode you’ve seen before

In March, the International Olympic Committee announced that it was getting into esports. It’s not adding videogames to the Olympics, but it is running a “global virtual and simulated sports competition” this year called the Olympic Esports Series 2023.

The tournament got a light roasting on social media when its game roster was initially announced, because rather than choosing big esports games like League of Legends or CS:GO, the IOC picked analogues of traditional sports, including WBSC eBaseball: Power Pros and mobile game Tennis Clash. The most esports-ey game in the mix was Gran Turismo, followed arguably by Chess.com.
