PUBG devs call out Fortnite over similarities
Bluehole, developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, thinks that Fortnite may be taking a few too many pointers from the game. Bluehole released a statement today talking about the similarities between the two games.
Bluehole VP and executive producer Chang Han Kim said, “We’ve had an ongoing relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG’s development as they are the creators of UE4, the engine we licensed for the game. After listening to the growing feedback from our community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we are concerned that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known.”
He continued, “We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press. This was never discussed with us and we don’t feel that it’s right.”
The PUBG community has provided more evidence that Fortnite is following the game too closely. Bluehole is considering further action on the matter.
Epic Games has not commented as of yet.
