  • Fortnite Battle Royale 10 million

As such, Epic is suing two of Fortnite's most prolific cheaters.

Epic Games has announced that its controversial Battle Royale mode for Fortnite has already hit 10m players in just two weeks.

Fortnight Battle Royale is a completely free mode that's anyone can download and play, only tangentially related to the base game which is a craft 'em up survival game that had some muddy messaging and launched to a muted reception. He nevertheless continues to play by creating multiple new accounts using false names to circumvent thee bans.

"Let's be straight for a second, nobody likes playing with cheaters", wrote Epic Games in a blog post last week outlining the company's stance against cheaters.

With this being the case, many publications are now wondering if the publisher of PUBG, Bluehole, will actually follow through on its threats of filing legal action.

As seen in the infographic attached to the tweet below, Epic Games and People Can Fly chose to not only announce the player milestone that Fortnite has hit, but also figured that fans could use some additional statistics about the game's free-to-play PvP companion mode.

Both defendants are apparently associated with a website that specifically aids cheaters and are facing up to $150,000 in charges for statutory damages if convicted. However, if you want to send a strong message against potential cheaters, this is the way to do it.
