    In a surprising announcement, Fortnite studio Epic Games announced that it had teamed up with Improbable to create a $25 million fund aimed at encouraging developers to leave Unity in favour of other platforms. Epic and Improbably created the fund to give cash to developers who abandon Unity for other game-development tools. Epic, of course, owns and operates the very popular Unreal Engine, which competes directly with Unity.

    Epic should never have tied themselves to this, at least not this soon. It's going to bite them in the ass. As more and more information comes out you find that Improbable is in the wrong on this, and Epic is going to get dragged into the fight for no damn reason but their own stupidity.
