Fortnite Dev Accused of Trying to Steal Talent from Radical Heights Team

The game is free to play and is part of the popular Battle Royale genre. Understandable, the genre is hot right now and his take on it with Radical Heights turned out to be an enjoyable blend of what we love about battle royale with an 80s twist to it. CliffyB didn't specifically name any employees who Epic supposedly tried to poach from his company, and he also didn't clarify if the studio successfully managed to "hire away" anyone employed by Boss Key. In the wake of the failure of Lawbreakers, Boss Key Productions Co-Founder Arjan Brussee left in December to return to Epic Games to work on a secret project. And while Bleszinski tweeted that there's room in the genre for "more than a few games", the public call-out reflects the inevitable industry tension as studios struggle over limited resources and player attention.

Cliff "Cliffy B" Bleszinski is currently the head of Boss Key Productions who has since released "Lawbreakers" past year and recently came up with "Radical Heights" which is out now on Steam as an early access title. With how far the game has to go before it reaches anywhere near the polish of Fortnite (still an early access title) or PUBG (plays like an early access title), Boss Key can ill afford to lose any of its personnel.
