Fortnite vs Radical Heights As Cliffy B Attacks Epic Games For Poaching
It’s safe to say that Fortnite has been taking over the gaming world as of late. With the title being involved in broken records on Twitch and just the overall popularity it has seen, one can assume that there is no end in sight. This hasn’t stopped Cliff Bleszinski and his studio from jumping onto the battle royale bandwagon. That being said, a Fortnite vs Radical Heights matchup is gaining traction. This is due to Cliffy B going after Epic Games for poaching his employees.
The Boss Key boss took to Twitter to ask Epic if they could stop attempting to steal away his team. He then goes on to say there is room in the battle royale genre for more than just a few title. Check it out for yourself:

After tweeting out the above, fans across Twitter began stopping by with their thoughts. However, a member of the team that were supposedly poached dropped in with something to say:
With all due respect, assuming that Epic is the one starting contact / poaching is a bit presumptuous. We all had our own reasons for making the choice to leave BKP for Epic, and to act like we are commodities being stolen is a bit hurtful. We are people first and foremost.

I think those who left would just rather work on a game that's going to still exist next year. Your management of your last "passion project" proved to be poor, despite the game's top-notch quality and development.

Lawbreakers showed that there obviously wasn't room in the hero shooter genre for you guys. What makes you think there's room in the even more crowded space of battle royale games for Radical Heights?

After LawBreakers was officially declared dead, Boss Key was quick to turn around with another title. This happened to be Radical Heights, and with the battle royale genre surging, it’s easy to assume that the studio was just trying to make up lost money from their previous game. That being said, when a newcomer joins the fight, all too often do they get accused of stealing. The same thing happened when Fortnite arrived after PUBG had been dominating, and it will continue to happen as long as the popular genre reigns supreme.
Despite the rocky start, Fortnite and PUBG found peace. Hopefully, the same can happen in the case of Fortnite vs Radical Heights. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
