PUBG Drops Lawsuit Against Epic Games

Earlier this morning Bloomberg has reported that PUBG Corp. is dropping it's lawsuit against Epic Games for copyright infringement.

PUBG Corp., the creator of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, was suing Epic Games South Korean branch, claiming that Fortnite had copied assets from PUBG's Battle Royale mode.

PUBG Corp. sent a letter of withdraw to Epic Games on Monday and the court's website no longer has the case pending. Bloomberg reached out to PUBG's legal team to confirm that the case has been dropped, but did not provide any additional updates or if a settlement was reached. Representatives for South Korea's Epic Games have not responded for comment.

But at least PUBG can go back to suing the more obvious copy-cat games, while Epic's title continues to dominate.
