Exciting Events recently announced it planned to bring the event back next year to the same location.

In a comment for Eurogamer, a representative of Epic Games said that the studio is in no way affiliated with Fortnite Live. It is reported that the owners of the Fortnite computer game, Epic Games, were taking legal action.

The event, which was not affiliated with Epic Games in any way, proved to be a disaster with many event-goers asking for refunds.

Fortnite Live, contrary to its name, had nothing to do with Epic Games' overwhelming battle royale sensation as event organisers ran the event without an official license. The two-day festival advertised outdoor laser tag, a climbing wall, archery, and more.

A festival in the United Kingdom based on the popular battle royale game, Fortnite, has gone the way of Fyre Fest, with hundreds of attendees requesting refunds after it was labelled, "a shambles".

Fortnite Live was meant to be a celebration of all things related to the blockbuster game, but in the grand tradition of other festivals such as the infamous FyreCon or Rain Furrest, it crashed and burned spectacularly.

The company says that its assets will be liquidated, and funds distributed to creditors.

In an email to ticket-holders, Exciting Events Limited said it was ceasing all trading activities.

"The quality of our player experience is incredibly important to us, whether it's inside the game or at official public events like last year's Fortnite Pro-Am", an Epic Games spokesperson told Eurogamer.

Numerous refund requests came after customers spent hours waiting in line to enter the event and receive the wristbands.

Fortnite Live was held at the Norfolk Showground near Norwich and featured a number of attractions which, I guess, were meant to let fans do some Fortnite-based stuff in real life.

"We put on a fantastic show with lots of activities and lots of people enjoyed themselves". "Fortnite Live" also apparently charged attendees to play in the PC gaming area, which is an ironic choice given that Fortnite is, in fact, free-to-play in your own home.
