Developmental challenges and changing of the game's scope pushed the release date back indefinitely. In May of 2014, Game Informer reported that the game would be free to play. A functioning prototype was completed that year, but Epic estimated it would take about three more years to work out the game's various kinks. The game was previewed in Alpha in late 2017, and in Beta in mid-2015. In July of 2017, Epic announced the game would be set for a 2018 release on macOS, Windows, Xbox, and Playstation 4. On July 25th, 2017, they released an early-access version of the game.

Reception[]

In September 2017, Bluehole, the parent company of PUBG, who developed PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, announced that they had "growing concerns" over the similarities between their game and _Fortnite_'s "Battle Royale" add-on. Bluehole Vice President Chang Han Kim said in a statement said:

"We’ve had an ongoing relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG’s development as they are the creators of [Unreal Engine 4], the engine we licensed for the gameAfter listening to the growing feedback from our community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we are concerned that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known."

On May 25th, 2018, The Korea Times reported that the Korea-based developer PUGB had filed a copyright suit against Fortnite creators Epic Games, alleging that Fortnite and Epic Games had infringed on their copyright. The injunction was filed with the Fortnite court

Since Epic Games launched the the "Battle Royale" feature of Fortnite, PUBG has been exploring response to what they saw as plagiarism, with Fortnite sharing many similarities with the video game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, including the user interface and in-game items.

An official for PUBG said, "We filed the law suit for no reason at all cause we think we are the best”
