Fortnite cracks down on cheaters, banning ‘thousands’
Smack talk all you want, but cheaters aren’t lasting long in Fortnite. In fact, apparently “thousands” of miscreants have been banned already.
Earlier this week, Epic gave cheaters a massive warning. “Addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games,” Epic’s Nathan Mooney declared. “We are constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers. And it’s ongoing, we’re exploring every measure to ensure these cheaters are removed and stay removed from Fortnite Battle Royale and the Epic ecosystem. We don’t want to give too many clues about what we’re doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so.”
At least one of those tools will be arriving over “the next several weeks” in the form of account progression. Quick cheating, jerks.
Cheaters are no fun to play with, but what are we doing about them?https://t.co/AFoXMujOqd
