Issa announces Fortnite 'comeback' as injury-hit pro goes again

The former Ghost Gaming alumni has had persistent wrist issues after a freak accident but hopes to make a return in July.
Issa announces Fortnite 'comeback' as injury-hit pro goes again

At one point in time, Issa "Issa" Rahim was considered one of the best controller Fortnite players in the world, he was one of the few that proved they could mix it with the best on mouse and keyboard and he was one of 100 that qualified for 2019's Fortnite World Cup.

But a persistent hand injury - the result of a freak accident involving a fire engine - forced the pro to finally hang up his controller in November of last year having prior taken long periods out from the game.

Even content creation was out of the question and Issa's appearances have been restricted to a few sporadic Twitch streams with little to note for the first six months of this year.

Issa returns to Fortnite

It looks like that is set to change though, with Issa teasing a return to Fortnite - in some capacity - next month.

In a tweet, Issa said: "Had these issues since the beginning and it's so draining to constantly think about what could've been if I was able to play every day," 

"But I'm still very proud about what I've achieved despite being held back and mostly very grateful for you guys, coming back around July 9th-11th"

Whether this marks a return to competitive Fortnite or a more regular streaming/content creation schedule is yet to be seen. 

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 starts tomorrow, 8th June, with the accompanying Fortnite Championship Series set to return with the qualifiers starting late July, early August. An appearance in that - whatever the result - would please many.
