Parents of Fortnite Players Filed Lawsuit Against Epic Games, Here Are the Details

Another lawsuit has been filed against Epic Games. Once again, parents are not too happy about their children playing Fortnite, which is why they’ve decided to settle this in court.

This is one of many lawsuits that have been filed against the Fortnite Battle Royale creator. Since the game came out in September 2017, many different people sued the company, from content creators to parents.

This article will reveal everything you need to know about the latest lawsuit. We will reveal important details about it and what it could lead to.

New lawsuit against Epic Games for Fortnite addiction

The new class-action lawsuit is brought by Quebec parents who claim that their kids have become addicted to Fortnite Battle Royale. The judge authorized the lawsuit, meaning that it will proceed.

“The court concludes that there is a serious issue to be argued, supported by sufficient and specific allegations as to the existence of risks or even dangers arising from the use of Fortnite.”

The Judge

Calex Legal, the firm that stands behind the lawsuit, compared the lawsuit against Epic Games to the lawsuit against the tobacco industry, claiming that both are responsible for the addiction of their consumers.

The judge believes that Epic Games did not deliberately create an addictive game. However, there is a possibility that the video game is indeed addictive, even if that’s not what its developer intended.

“The court finds that there is no evidence for these allegations of the deliberate creation of an addictive game. This does not exclude the possibility that the game is in fact addictive and that its designer and distributor are presumed to know it.”

One parent claimed that their child has had around 8,000 sessions and played two to three hours a day. Many parents reported their children getting angry when they try to to limit their game time.

More than 200 parents participate in the lawsuit and many more of them may join it soon. The compensation hasn’t been determined yet, but it will eventually be decided by the court.

Epic Games has 30 days to seek an appeal in regard to the class-action lawsuit. The company’s lawyers argued that there wasn’t enough evidence for the lawsuit. However, it has been authorized and it will be interesting to see how it ends.



  1. Be a parent and whoop that butt. Log into your router Or call your internet company and set up parental controls for your child’s console to where they can only play on the internet for a certain time period after that time period is up the childs console will be disconnected from the internet. For example if you set up the console to disconnect from the internet at 7pm that’s what time they will get kicked from the internet and won’t be able to play any games that require internet and then set it to where it will reconnect at a certain time.
