In the Game Informer interview, Epic Games Director Rod Fergusson said he had planned to cancel the development of the Fortnite game. Because according to Fergusson, the project has many challenges.
Fortnite development almost to be canceled
“And as the production director at that time, the game will not pass through my bar because of something we have to do,” he said, as quoted by Ubergizmo on Monday (6/17/2019).
Fergusson left before Fortnite was as successful as he is now. However, it seems he did not regret leaving the company when Fortnite had not been successful.
“So when people see me and say,‘ Do you not regret (leave before Fortnite’s success)? ’
As is known, Fortnite has now gained success. Games can be played on computers, consoles, and cellular. Thanks to the success of Fortnite, another battle royale game appears out there.
One of the similar games that managed to attract attention was Apex Legends. A week after its release, Apex Legends was successfully played by 25 million players.
