PlayerUnknown's Creator Shares Thoughts on Fortnite Success;

Fortnite Battle Royale is the most popular game of the moment, being released for iPhone phones a little more than a week ago and gamers simply love it. We know that. But ads help us pay the bills.

One of the biggest differences between Fortnite and PUBG is the size of the maps. Epic has more than twice the employees of PUBG creator Bluehole, which previous year issued what sounded like a legal threat when Fortnite's battle royale mode was first released. Included in their campaign are Level 3 backpacks filled with SteelSeries gear, SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless headsets with exclusive PUBG ear plates, an MSI Optix MPG27C Curved LED Gaming Monitor with a full suite of SteelSeries gear, PUBG QcK+ mousepads signed by creator, Brandon Greene and more.

According to VG247, "Epic will release the tools to developers in Unreal Engine 4.20 this summer".

Speculation about the reasons for Fortnite's success have centered on the game's accessibility and because it is a free-to-play title.

Along with a quick tease of the map, Greene and PUBG Corp CEO and producer Chang Han Kim released a "thank you" video.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is available now on Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android. Whatever the opinion on Fortnite is, there's no denying the game's popularity and recognition. "When I started this three years ago, I never thought I'd be saying things like this", Greene said.

Students have been posting about the use of Fortnite in schools, including the fact that some schools have banned students from downloading Fortnite on their provided iPads or just outright banned the game on school Wi-Fi networks. I get asked this question sometimes, like, 'What're you doing to combat this?' I got it when PUBG came out, we were killing H1Z1. I don't want have this attitude like 'We're better than them.' We are all a relatively friendly group; we don't have a real-life GDC battle royale.
