PUBG Corporation is suing Epic Games in Korea to “protect” their copyright. PUBG Corp stated that “Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known” as well as stating PUBG is the “first standalone Battle Royale survival shooter game.” We all know that statement is 100% false. Anyone remember a game called H1Z1? Or how about that Arma mod? Anyone? Can we hear you from the back? Sure, the battle royale genre may have been made more popular with the booming success of PUBG, but they in no way hold a monopoly on this type of game and certainly were not the first.
There are many differences between the games. PUBG is a military shooter. Fortnite is an arcade-style shooter with cartoon elements. We can easily see the differences if we simply compare the items.
We will leave this up to you to decide if you think PUBG is in the right, but the writing is on the wall. Epic Games does not have any reason to be scared. This law suit will likely put a mark on the PUBG Corp., especially when suing the company that owns the game engine you use in your game. Hmmm.
