Fortnite’s name dragged in a fake event
Recently, a third-party company that has been trying to make profits off the original game.
A U.K.-based firm seems to have taken things to the very next level, and it organized a Fortnite-themed live event without even asking for permission to Epic Games.
As expected, the event was a complete failure, and Epic Games is suing the company for all the damages that have been done to the brand.
The company that organized this fake event is called “Exciting Events,” and the event took place in the U.K. and it wasn’t really that “exciting.”
