Given the meteoric rise of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, it was inevitable that other games would try and emulate its success. On PlayStation 4, where PUBG isn't yet available, we've got the likes of Fortnite's newly introduced Battle Royale mode. By most accounts, the survive-'em-up's effort is pretty good, but PUBG developer Bluehole doesn't seem all that happy with Fortnite studio Epic's move.

"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," a statement from Bluehole VP Chang Han Kim reads. "We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press. This was never discussed with us and we don't feel that it's right," it continues.

Fair enough we suppose, but we're sure Bluehole's been expecting a parade of imitators for a while now. What do you make of this? Can you blame other developers for trying to cash in on the success of something like PUBG? Please don't copy and paste another's thoughts in the comments section below.
