"The Console Champions Cup will be the first installment in a series of seasonal, cross-platform, console exclusive tournaments. We’re still making adjustments in the calendar for future tournaments, so we don’t have dates for the following seasons just yet, but we’ll keep you posted when we do," Epic Games said.

"Don’t worry, we’re also still planning on offering additional platform-specific console tournaments with in-game rewards up for grabs, just like we did with the Switch Cup and the Aloy Cup."
