Meet the former director at Epic Games who tried to cancel ‘Fortnite’
The video game industry over the last two years came close to looking dramatically different, thanks to an Epic Games ex-director admitting that he actually tried to cancel the super popular Fortnite game before he left the company in 2012.
The free-to-play shooter, of course, went on to take the game industry by storm, netting by one estimate almost $2.5 billion in revenue in 2018 alone. It's also caused companies like Netflix to think creatively about how they regard competition, with Netflix's leadership repeatedly singling out Fortnite as tougher competition for user eyeballs that rival streamers.
