With millions of dollars pouring in from sales and in-app purchases, it was only a matter of time before Fortnite made some investments and they have done just that by acquiring an anti-cheat company Kamu
Epic games, the creator of Fortnite has a strong anti-cheat stance and has already deployed Kamu’s Easy Anti-Cheat software for its sandbox survival game. With over 120 million registered users, it is natural that Fortnite will be a prime target for scammers and cheaters.

“Building and launching games today is incredibly challenging, and only half the battle. Kamu’s tools for managing live games help developers grow and sustain their games successfully after launch. At Epic, we succeed when developers succeed!” He Added
Simon Allaeys, CEO of Kamu said, “Joining the Epic family is not only a childhood dream come true, but a huge boost for our mission to help developers create beautiful gaming experiences. Battling cheating in games was just the start; today our products also help developers stay competitive by identifying player needs as quickly as they emerge.”
