So it would seem that Epic Games are looking to sue a h4x0r in Fortnite who both streams themselves hacking and sells the hacks to others. The grounds of the legal action seem to be copyright based and misuse of code.
HORSE. STABLE. BOLTED.
As multiplayer gamers, we’ve had to endure this for probably getting on for 2 decades… and developers have done sod-all about it. Not properly.
Frankly, as the mainstream multiplayer gaming has increased with another splurt of popularity, I find myself moving further and further away from it.
Still, will be interesting to see its outcome. I guess developers haven’t opened the pandora’s box of legal action before, because if they lost, it’d spell all sorts of trouble in trying to stop cheats. Going to be fun explaining to some senile judge what Fortnite and hackers are though.
