Fortnite: unlike Blizzard, Epic will not banner users for political reasons

In the last few days, Blizzard’s particular decision caused a stir. He decided to punish a Heartstone player for his support for the recent protests in Hong Kong. In this regard also Epic Games intervened, which confirmed that nothing similar will ever happen in Fortnite Battaglia Reale.

Here is the statement from the battle royale development team:

“Epic Games supports the freedom of anyone both in terms of political thinking and their own view of human rights. We will not ban or punish Fortnite players and content creators of the Royal battle just for expressing an opinion on one of these arguments. “

It is, therefore, a very clear stance that contrasts strongly with what happened over the past few days. A similar declaration would also confirm a certain “independence” of Epic compared to Tencent, a company considered one of the main causes of what happened in the Blitzchung case.

Did you know that in the last months of 2019 there was a sharp decline in Fortnite Battaglia Reale’s earnings? We would also like to remind you that next Sunday there will be a new event in play that will kick off Season 11 of Fortnite.
