It seemed inevitable that a PUBG sue Fortnite battle would happen, and now it has. The Korean Times reports that a PUBG official has confirmed that an injunction has been filed, alleging copyright infringement. This actually happened back in January, but we’re only just hearing about it now.
It’s not clear when we’ll hear more about the lawsuit and how it is progressing. It’s also not clear how this will affect the games outside of Korea. Only time will tell.
This isn’t the first time that PUBG and Fortnite have butted heads, and it likely won’t be the last. There is a hell of a lot of money to be made (and lost) when it comes to the battle royale genre.
In other PUBG news, the new Sanhok map was recently tested on the Closed Experimental Server, an argument as to whether PUBG is pay to win has been brought up again, and it’s been found that 30% of all PC gamers are playing battle royale titles.
