PUBG vs Fortnite comes to an end? Lawsuit reaches its conclusion

The long-lasting battle between two of the hottest game in the world right now has come to its end, at least in legal form, as the studio behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has dropped its lawsuit against the creators of global sensation Fortnite

PUBG Corp. sent a letter of withdrawal to Epic Games Inc.’s attorneys on Monday and the South Korean case has since closed, according to Bloomberg report. PUBG and its law firm confirmed the action but wouldn’t say why, nor whether a settlement had been reached. Both companies are part-owned by social media and gaming giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. and have carved out commanding positions in the Battle Royale format. PUBG contended in January that Epic’s Fortnite mimicked many of the characteristics of its own title. The copyright infringement accusation came as PUBG separately sued China’s Netease Inc. for allegedly basing two games — Rules of Survival and Knives Out — on its product.

PUBG, an affiliate of South Korean studio Bluehole Inc., has sold more than 44 million copies of its marquee title for personal computers and Microsoft Xbox since its launch last year. But the Hunger Games-style game has seen its popularity wane as Fortnite’s has waxed. Like PUBG, Fortnite features 100 people slaughtering each other, but differs by letting players build fortifications similar to Minecraft and using cartoon-like graphics.

It’s good seeing it come to an end, as a healthy competition is much-needed in the industry and there’s defiantly a place for the two games
