PUBG Vs. Fortnite: Is Epic's Free Battle Royale Mode In Legal Trouble?

Rate this Entry
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is considered the most popular game on Steam at the moment, in order that it will undoubtedly face copycats. However, when Epic Games released a Battle Royale mode for the survival shooter Fortnite, PUBG developer Bluehole responded negatively, saying it had been "considering further action" against Epic--which also actually is the company that licenses PUBG's engine.
"We've had a regular relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG's development because they are the creators of UE4, the engine we licensed for the sport," said Bluehole VP Chang Han Kim. "After listening on the growing feedback from community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we have been concerned that Fortnite could be replicating the event for Fortnite Skins which PUBG is famous."
There are really some questionable things at play here, specially in regards to business ethics, but did Epic Games take a step illegal? In the video above, we explore the legal side of the developer spat and speak to video game attorney Ryan Morrison. He delves to the meat of what's at play here and explains just what "considering further action" means. While he doesn't think it's likely that this will go to court, he explains how Bluehole could produce a case against Epic Games.
Fortnite: Battle Royale launched totally free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC yesterday and was played by a million people on launch day across all 3 platforms. PUBG, in contrast, is available on PC, eventhough it is slated with an Xbox One release later this coming year. However, regardless if it launches on Xbox One, it might be quite a while before it comes for the PS4--a recent report says Bluehole is enthusiastic about extending its Xbox One console exclusivity.
The Dive is really a show that digs deeper into current events and original stories from your world of online games. Last week's episode jumped headfirst into PewDiePie, DMCA, and also the legality of Let's Plays. In addition to Morrison's assistance in explaining the legal side of Campo Santo removing PewDiePie's Firewatch content, we have been told by professional Let's Player Ryan "Northernlion" Letourneau about "Copyright School" along with the threat the DMCA poses on YouTubers.
