Fortnite cheaters should watch out as Epic Games has announced its acquisition of the anti-cheat company Kamu. Kamu's Easy Anti-Cheat software is now installed on 100 million PCs worldwide and is used for over 80 games, including Fortnite. The Helsinki-based security firm was purchased by the Battle Royale developer just recently.

Kamu's team and tools have been key to building a vibrant Fortnite multiplayer experience that's fair for all players.

"Building and launching games today is incredibly challenging, and only half the battle", Sweeney said in a statement.

Kamu's CEO Simon Allaeys adds: "Joining the Epic family is not only a childhood dream come true, but a huge boost for our mission to help developers create handsome gaming experiences".

"Joining the Epic family is not only a childhood dream come true, but a huge boost for our mission to help developers create lovely gaming experiences", Kamu CEO Simon Allaeys said. The firm assists game developers and publishers with managing various features like anti-cheat functionality and security. The boy had been banned over a dozen times prior to being taken to court - and had a youtube channel "dedicated" to cheating and data modification software.

More important to the average Fortnite fan is what the move will mean for the game's anti-cheat development as more and more players appear to be finding ways to gain an unfair advantage, particularly on PC.
