Fortnite Dev Accused of Trying to Steal Talent from Radical Heights Team

Fortnite Dev Accused of Trying to Steal Talent from Radical Heights Team”

When they first announced they were bringing in their own Battle Royale genre PUBG fans, including the game's creator himself, immediately went on the offensive claiming that there was a breach of trust and ideas were stolen.

This week, Boss Key launched Radical Heights, the '80s-themed battle royale game that is currently in "X-Treme Early Access" and now a direct competitor with Epic's runaway hit Fortnite. CliffyB didn't specifically name any employees who Epic supposedly tried to poach from his company, and he also didn't clarify if the studio successfully managed to "hire away" anyone employed by Boss Key. Despite Boss Key Productions still being a full developer, Cliffy B has made an accusation that Epic Games is trying to woo some staff members away. And while Bleszinski tweeted that there's room in the genre for "more than a few games", the public call-out reflects the inevitable industry tension as studios struggle over limited resources and player attention.

After Lawbreakers was officially put to rest, Boss Key's Cliff Bleszinski chose to jump onboard the battle royale train.

To be fair, this is an early access release and the game is free, so some of its problems might be forgivable, for now.
