While things could be looking up for Boss Key, it looks like some things happening in the background have now been brought to light, through the developer's head Cliff Bleszinski.
We'll keep you posted if the story develops further!
The similarities between Fortnite and Radical Heights, both of which are battle royale shooters with colourful aesthetics, are likely a factor.
According to Bleszinski, Epic Games has been poaching his team.
There's no mention of Brusee in this new allegation, or if Epic is poaching even more of Boss Key's talent. Brussee - who was also a co-founder of Guerilla Games - left Boss Key to work on "exciting secret project" for Epic Games.
Moreover, since Radical Heights is built on Unreal Engine 4 which is developed by Epic Games, those with significant experience with that technology may have wanted to work at its creator.
Bleszinski said then of Brussee: "He is not only a brilliant person but also a dear friend and I wish him well in his future endeavors".
Details surrounding the accusations have yet to be revealed, such as what Epic Games is supposedly doing behind the scenes to entice Boss Key members to leave the company, or whether Boss Key members have already left due to the practice. With Fortnite back, Radical Heights has returned to decent, but more sobering player numbers.
