Battleground THREATS Over Copycat

Game News: Battleground THREATS Over Copycat

Battlegrounds developer Bluehole is crying foul over another game copying it and threatening "further action" to stop the copy. Ironic? A bit, maybe, but it depends on the ins and outs of video game business politics.

    So... Tencent Games (TGP), who already partially owns EPIC, was possibly courting Bluehole, who uses EPIC technology, for acquisition only for EPIC to implement a similar mechanic with the heavy suggestion (but not out-right explicitly stating) that PUBG players in particular will like this new mode. This is some Soap Opera level of drama.


    Someone needs to go check EPIC's fine print on their Unreal Engine. I'm willing to bet that someone with fluency in Legalese will find some clauses that state something to the idea that what you create with Unreal is fair game as long as EPIC doesn't duplicate any of your customized technology when adding to their own technology. If that exists, then EPIC can talk about duplicating Unreal custom experiences to their hearts' content while developing their own technology to make it happen.


    Unless Bluehole can prove that TGP was indeed looking to acquire them and that there was a separate agreement with EPIC in addition to Unreal usage agreements, Bluehole doesn't really have much to use even with the direct and specific reference to the PUBG style of game before touting their own intended gaming experience. TGP looking to acquire Bluehole isn't enough on its own in my opinion.

    This is hilarious. The people that knocked off the mode in the first place complaining because someone else hopped on the money train. GG Fortnite, GG.
