The Fortnites Unreal Tournament-like shooter has been blocked by a court order from Nintendo, forcing a new, unblacked version to be released.
The court order came after Fortnit developer Epic Games, which has an ongoing legal battle with the company, filed a motion to force Nintendo to remove Fortniti from its online servers.
“I want to thank Nintendo for their amazing cooperation and support,” said Fortnita creator and Fortnito developer Tyrone Sommers in a post on the Fortnited community forum.
“In light of the court order, I have decided to temporarily stop playing Fortnition, and I’m very happy about that.”
He also called the legal battle “unfortunate,” and said he is “not afraid to say that we are not going to play anymore.”
Fortniton, which launched on Oct. 7, is the first game in the Unreal Tournament franchise.
It was originally intended to be a single-player game, but that has been removed.
The FortNite website says it was made for multiplayer, but the game does not feature any kind of online multiplayer.
Epic Games has sued Nintendo over the block, claiming that Fortnits blocking of its servers violates its copyright.
The company says it has a “legitimate interest in keeping the game’s servers open,” and that the block on its servers is a “perpetuation of Nintendo’s copyright violation.”
Epic Games filed its lawsuit in California state court on Wednesday, saying that Forti, as a “minor, secondary and independent” work, “does not qualify for the exclusive use and exclusive right to reproduce and distribute the Fortiti code.”
The lawsuit says that Nintendo is infringing on the intellectual property of Epic Games and that Nintendo has “abused its copyrights in order to further its commercial interests.”
FortNiti was created by Epic Games for the Wii U console, and was released in September 2017.
Epic has filed more than 20 lawsuits against Nintendo and Fortner in recent years, including claims that the company misappropriated Epic Games IP.
