Maybe it was negative feedback from fans, or maybe it was the realization that they didn’t stand a chance in court. Whatever the reason, Bluehole and PUBG Corp. have dropped their lawsuit against Epic Games that alleged copyright infringement for Epic’s handling of Fortnite: Battle Royale and its impact on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

The lawsuit was filed in January, though it only became public knowledge about a month ago. This came after a cryptic statement last September that seemed to indicate that legal proceedings could be forthcoming, even though many people — including us here at MMOBomb — thought such a possibility was laughable.

According to Bloomberg, the PUBG Corp. sent a “letter of withdrawal” to Epic on Monday, ending the suit. PUBG’s lawsuits against Netease’s copycat battle royale games are still ongoing.
