Fortnite Makers Grilled By UK Politicians Over Game Safety

The makers of Fortnite, one of the most popular video games ever, have been quizzed by member of parliaments in the UK over what measures are taken to protect players of the game. From a report: Epic Games representatives were asked how it ensured users did not spend too much time or money on the game. Legal counsel Canon Pence said this was not something the company currently tracked. This was “extraordinary”, said Damian Collins, who chairs the Digital, Culture Media and Sport Committee. “You’re the one who has responsibility,” he said. The committee hearing was called to examine immersive and addictive technologies. Among the concerns raised by MPs were whether Epic Games did enough to verify the age of players or encourage users to take breaks after long periods of gameplay.
