Leaks can sometimes be seen as good or bad. It can be good because it allows companies to get an idea of what consumers are feeling/saying without officially confirming anything, so changes can still be made. It can also be bad because sometimes leaks paint an incomplete picture or ruins the surprise.

As we have seen in the past, some companies take leaks very seriously, which is why it’s not a surprise to learn that Epic has sent a cease and desist letter to popular Fortnite leakster, FNBRLeaks. According to the FNBRLeaks’ owner, Preston, “Due to the request of an Epic Games Attorney who i’m not going to disclose, my Twitter, Discord, YouTube, Instagram, and GitHub must be deleted, or else they will take action. Thank you all for the support and followers over my 7-month span of the FNBRLeaks twitter. Sadly, everything comes to an end.”

It was initially suggested that the shut down could have been due to the steady stream of leaks, but according to Epic, they claim that the reason for the cease and desist was due to the alleged promotion and advertising of game modification tools, which are against Epic’s terms of service, and is not related to data mining or leaking of Fortnite content.

Regardless of what the reason was, the result is the shut down of FNBRLeaks, so if you’re hoping to get your hands on more leaks surrounding the game, you’ll have to start looking elsewhere for said information, unless FNBRLeaks decides to set up shop again under a different moniker.
