Epic Games Suing Fornite Cheaters, Including Minor Whose Mother Responded

Epic Games is taking a 14-year old kid to court for cheating

But the mother of the minor has chosen to respond to Epic's complaint with a strongly worded letter to the court.

Epic is also teasing a new limited time mode for Fortnite Battle Royale, due to be revealed at the Game Awards on 7th December. After this though, Epic went a bit further by suing two cheaters, one of whom is a minor who made a decision to speak out about it on YouTube, and this is where things start getting more interesting and more complicated. Epic is not okay with ongoing cheating or copyright infringement from anyone at any age.

Having been the bane of many Microsoft employee for their confusing corridors, it's unlikely they'll be missed. The renovation will see the iconic X-shaped buildings of Bill Gates' Microsoft era go.

Furthermore, the woman says that Fortnite's terms and conditions require parental consent, which she never gave, and that these norms are not legally binding as posed by Epic Games to new players. "As stated previously, we take cheating seriously, and we'll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players". Some have taken the extraordinary measure of filing suit against the alleged perpetrators, such as Epic Games did last month against two users of cheat software in its Fortnite game.

However, the 14-year old's mother has chose to fight the case on his son's behalf and has claimed that Epic Games is using them as scapegoats.

She the station that the last time she spoke to her son was Sunday night, and everything seemed fine. The couple started to worry when Logan and his grandmother failed to pick them up from the airport.

The update also brings with it enhancements for the Xbox One X which Epic Games says "pushes the game's visual settings comparable to what you'd see on a PC set to "Epic" quality". The woman goes on to point out that Epic needs to provide direct proof of his son generating mass losses with his activities. What do you guys think Epic Games should do in this situation? Important to note that a minor can not be sued directly, which means there's a chance Epic did not know of the 14-year old's identity at the time.

"Epic Games, Inc. has released the defendants name publicly, therefore allowing news articles and different online publications to obtain his name and in turn release additional information", the mother said in her letter. This week we're seeing a bunch of bug fixes while also a few new additions to the game itself.

Congress, are the first media that have been notified by Moscow of a possible recording next under that name. Radio stations Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, funded by the u.s.

It is possible that Epic did not know the age of the minor before they named him, but Epic did not address that question when asked. She adds that Epic wouldn't have lost money as it's a free-to-play title, that her son merely downloaded the cheat software and didn't help create it (as Epic claims), and that releasing her boy's name publicly means Epic has violated DE laws related to the release of information on minors.
