Epic Games allegedly created ‘Fortnite’ to be as addictive as cocaine.


Popular gaming company Epic Games finds themselves in lawsuit, claiming Fortnite is allegedly addictive as cocaine. The lawsuit also alleges that the developer, Epic Games, intentionally made the game addictive. “Epic Games, when they created Fortnite, for years and years, hired psychologists — they really dug into the human brain and they really made the effort to make it as addictive as possible," an attorney told CBC. “In our case, the two parents that came forward and told, 'If we knew it was so addictive it would ruin our child's life, we would never have let them start playing Fortnite or we would have monitored it a lot more closely.”
