Fortnite Leaks Crackdown: Epic Games Forces Closure of FNBRLeaks

With Fortnite Season 7 in full swing, it isn’t simply fans of Epic Games’ fight royale experience Fortnite who have had their hands full. The company’s legal representatives have been hectic too, sending out a legal notification to Fortnite leaker, FNBRLeaks. This comes after aspects of Fortnite Season 7, such as its snow-themed map were datamined and revealed. The FNBRLeaks Twitter account tweeted that Epic Games had threatened legal action if numerous FNBR social media profiles and GitHub Page weren’t deleted. What this means is, leakages of what to get out of Fortnite might concern a crawl. More significantly, it highlights how heavy-handed Epic Games can get with its own neighborhood and fans.

” I am not going to enter into specifics with this,” the tweet checks out. “Due to the demand of an Epic Games Attorney who i’m not going to divulge, my Twitter, Discord, YouTube, Instagram, and GitHub needs to be deleted, otherwise they will act. Thank you all for the assistance and fans over my 7 month period of the FNBRLeaks twitter. Unfortunately, whatever concerns an end.”

In addition to this, the now deleted FNBRLeaks Discord had images of the legal notice that were posted by an FNBRLeaks staffer. It specifies that FNBRLeaks “spoiled the video game for millions of people who play and/or watch Fortnite, and negatively impact [ed] those who strive to create and upgrade Fortnite. The truth that he is a teenager makes this no less real”.

Considering how the Fortnite neighborhood has responded to previous leaks, it appears that little has been spoiled due to the fact that Fortnite does not have a deep story or narrative that plays out. Besides, it’s unusual to see gamers feel mad over a leakage of something as minor as a new cosmetic item in a game.

Nonetheless, this Fortnite leakages crackdown could be simply the start. For a company that champs open platforms, Epic is rather obstinate about how its fans must enjoy Fortnite.
