Epic Removes Police Cars From ‘Fortnite’

Gamers report that Epic has removed all Fortnite police cars from the shooter’s latest update and the Wall Street Journal understands that it was in response to protests by Black Lives Matter over police violence. According to a WSJ source, the developer was not trying to make a “political statement,” but instead was trying to be “sensitive about the issues” players are dealing with.

Epic appears to be taking a milder approach with Fortnite, acknowledging the outrage without explicitly advocating for a cause. The company previously stressed that it wouldn’t ban players for political speech.
