Seen this on the PS4 board.

They don't have a leg to stand on. While Battle Royale isn't a well known or popular game mode for most games it certainly isn't unique and you can't claim copyright over it.

Next thing you know game corporations will claim copyright for having cars you can drive in them.

Well ARK released their own Battle Royale game before long before PUBG so I guess they should fork over money to the ARK devs.

I doubt they'd win, but it'd be nice to see Epic Games get some retribution for that garbage they're putting out.

According to what PUBG has been saying, the Fortnite devs have been citing PUBG a lot as their inspiration for the adoption of the game mode, as well as in advertising/social media posts. I don't know if that's true or not, but that could be a strike against them.

On the other hand, I saw about 30 seconds of the Fortnite game and it doesn't look anything visually like PUBG so...

That actually is pretty funny. My first interest in PUBG was that it looked like a version of The Culling that still had people playing, so it's going to be really cute to see them argue why all of a sudden they need the genre to themselves.

The movie Battle Royale was released 17 years ago. I'm surprised they're not suing all the developers listed above.
