Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world, but the path to getting there saw Epic Games, which publishes the game making some rather... risky decisions. And we're not just talking in terms of investments.
Fortnite has has to deal with a lot of legal problems since its launch, especially for its use of dances and its similarity to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. However, the game has also courted controversy with physics relating to a part of one of its skins, and numerous other costumes. There's also the matter of some of the issues regarding its crossplay and the ability to play with gamers on different consoles, though it's hard not to at least partially blame Sony for that one.
There are a lot of ways that Fortnite has gotten itself into trouble doing some risky things. Of course, some of these issues are less Fortnite's fault and more peoples' reactions to the game and the publisher's choices. Check out the video below for more of the ways that have gotten Fortnite and Epic Games in trouble.
Since its launch, Fortnite has gained an astonishingly large fan base. Epic Games is also known for such popular games as Infinity Blade, Unreal and Gears of War. The game has featured cameos from such popular characters as Wreck-It Ralph from Wreck-It Ralph and Ralph Breaks the Internet and the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Thanos. There have also been reference to the games in everything ranging from television to film. Following the success of Fortnite, the publisher has launched the Epic Games Store.
