PUBG vs Fortnite

PLAYER UNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developer BlueHole is expressing concern over similarities between their battle royale game and Fortnite, which Epic Games acknowledges in saying "We love battle royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version." This is not to be confused with recent comments from Daybreak Games saying "there wouldn’t be PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds without H1Z1." The Verge relates BlueHole's thoughts on the topic:
Now, PUBG developer Bluehole has issued a response to what it describes as “growing concerns” about the similarities between the two games. “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 game,” Chang Han Kim, Bluehole’s vice president, said in a statement. “After 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.”

Bluehole says its concerns extend beyond just the basic, last-player-standing theme of both games, and also include similarities with Fortnite’s interface and structure. “We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press,” Han Kim said. “This was never discussed with us and we don’t feel that it’s right.”

Unless Epic actually copied code from PUBG this is just useless dev whining.

Surprised no one has pointed out that PUBG runs on Unreal - ya know... Epic's game engine. To further the irony, pretty sure PUBG uses features that Epic developed primarily for Fortnite.

So in a nutshell, BlueHole used Fortnite (Unreal) code to make a Battle Royale game and is now complaining that Epic used Fortnite code to make a Battle Royale game.
