PUBG Corp. Withdraws Lawsuit Against Epic Over Fortnite
The lawsuit filed by PUBG Corp. against Epic Games has been dropped, according to Bloomberg. The financial-news organization says that the South Korean case has been closed, but was unable to confirm the reasons why or if a settlement had been reached between the two companies.
PUBG Corp. filed the lawsuit in January, citing similarities between PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite's Battle Royale that it claimed crossed the line into copyright infringement. Oddly enough, both companies are partially owned by the Chinese tech company Tencent.
