Rumor: Is Fortnite Battle Royale Shutting Down?

This week, Boss Key launched Radical Heights, the '80s-themed battle royale game that is currently in "X-Treme Early Access" and now a direct competitor with Epic's runaway hit Fortnite.

GamesIndustry.biz published an article Friday morning that looked at precisely this phenomenon in the increasingly-crowded battle royale space, comparing it to the MOBA boom that's only recently tapered off.

"Save the world will still be in development and we will roll out ASAP". By the time the servers came back up, Epic had been experiencing Fortnite server issues for almost 24 hours, resulting in a lengthy maintenance period that made the game inaccessible for everyone. "We are sorry to inform you that Fortnite Battle Royale Will be coming to an end May 24, 2018", the tweet said.

Next week will bring more free stuff to make up for the issues. Those appear to be ironed out now for the most part, but developer Epic plans to apologize with freebies for everyone.

There's no doubt that Epic Game's third-person shooter, Fortnite is a hot topic of conversation amongst most gamers.


That, as you can guess, is not good when you have a game as popular as Fortnite is. That's how to enable cross platform Fortnite play.

Like most do, people took to Twitter soon after the rumor started to either confirm or deny it while voicing their own opinions on the shutdown scenario.

This clip courtesy of Reddit user Splaticuss shows the great detail which the replay mode goes into, even showing a close up shot of the bullet shell falling in slow motion from the hunting rifle. It's a tough problem to solve because they're different paces of game.

"PUBG has suffered irreparable harm as a result of Defendants' infringing activities and will continue to suffer irreparable harm in the future unless Defendants are enjoined from their infringing conduct", the lawsuit reads.

Fortnite is the hottest online game in the entire industry, there can be no doubt about that.
