PUBG and its law office affirmed the action yet wouldn’t state why, nor whether a settlement had been come to. Delegates for Epic in Korea had no quick remark.
PUBG developer Bluehole already uncovered it had “developing worries” about the similitudes between the two games, and it’s a fight that appeared to bubble over into the courts with this lawsuit.
Both Epic Games and Bluehole are part-owned by gaming mammoth Tencent Holdings, and Tencent has allegedly been nearing an arrangement to expand its PUBG speculation to 10 percent.
