Epic's Fortnite is a massive, worldwide phenomenon that has reached a level of popularity that few could imagine. The free game almost did not exist, however, it was revealed this week on E3 2019.
Rod Fergusson, former director of Epic Games, revealed he wants to cancel Fortnite when he was in the company. At that time, the project did not have the royal battle component (which provoked the success of the game) and faced some challenges.
"If I stayed in Epic, I would have to cancel Fortnite, informing about the game." Before I left, I tried to cancel Fortnite. When it was just "Save the World," it was a project that had some challenges. As the director of the production at that time, this game would not go through the bar for something we had to go on. Ferguson did not specify the difficulties at Forthnett at that time. He left Epic in 201
He reminded people that Fortnite might not exist if he stays in Epic. "This game you love, the world's sensation, it would not have existed if I had stayed in Epic," he said.
Fergusson probably had no idea that Epic wanted to make Fortnite a game in a fight as he left the company for half a decade before the game was released.
In other news, BAFTA has given Epic a special prize this week on E3 for its "impact on the global gaming industry."
