Epic Games are serious about cheating, so much so that they're suing two individual for developing software and distributing it to cheating services that enables people to purchase cheating software for their game Fortnite.
"Ten million players" isn't the most precise measure, and Fortnite isn't on Steam so it's impossible to verify the figure, although I can't imagine that Epic would throw it around if it wasn't accurate.
Epic is living up to its promise of not tolerating cheaters in its recently released free-to-play Battle Royale mode. It has already banned "thousands" of players, and it will continue the bans as needed.
Kim Kardashian Clears Up Rumors About North & Saint's Relationship
In the past, Kim has mentioned that North West , 4, does not like her little brother Saint West , 22 months. She needs to still get it together and warm up and be a little bit nicer, but I think she's getting there.
As for why Epic is taking such a hard line against the supposed cheaters, the studio explained that one of the alleged cheaters was banned nine times already but created a new account every time to get back in.
Because you can't actually be sued for cheating, Epic is going after them on charges of copyright infringement; arguing that to use an aimbot means messing around with the game's code - which is illegal.
Contacted for comment about the lawsuit, Epic would only comment on the company's approach to dealing with cheaters overall. "As Defendant intends, this often ruins the game for the other players, and for the many people who watch "streamers". 'We take cheating seriously, and we'll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players'.
