PUBG Corp ends Epic Games lawsuit over PUBG and Fortnite copyright infringement claims

The developer behind Playerunknown's Battlegrounds PUBG Corp has reportedly dropped its lawsuit against Epic Games.

That's according to the local court system website - as reported by Bloomberg - which said that PUBG Corp has sent a letter of withdrawl to Epic, closing the case. PUBG Corp confirmed this to Bloomberg.

Why the suit has been dropped is unclear. Both companies have relationships with Chinese tech and entertainment giant Tencent so it's possible that the parent has had to get in to stop the kids fighting.

The suit was filed in January of this year, with PUBG Corp alleging the Unreal Engine giant had infringed its copyright.
