Since the launch of Fortnite: Battle Royale, PUBG Corp – the team behind the massively popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds haven’t been too happy with the similarities between the two titles. A little over a month ago the company went full force against Epic Games, launching a lawsuit against the gaming company.
Now Bloomberg has reported that the lawsuit has been withdrawn, the reason for the withdrawal we don’t know.
What’s pretty important to note is the role of Tencent in this lawsuit. The Chinese publisher owns a 10 percent stake in Bluehole (which PUBG Corp is a part of) and a 40 percent stake in Epic Games. That and both the games utilize Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. Could Tencent have played a role in diffusing situation?
