Epic Games continues to “magick” ways to keep millions of players interested in Fortnite by constantly releasing new content. The latest content is an Emote that will definitely go viral in Battle Royale. The new “The Renegade” is an exact replica of the viral dance that flooded TikTok.
These movements were created by a teenager from the city of Atlanta (United States), who despite being responsible for this already legendary TikTok dance, often goes unnoticed. However, Epic Games had an excellent attitude, recognizing her as the creator of the Renegade dance in its publication on Twitter.
Jalaiah Harmon will definitely receive a lot of attention over the next few days, especially considering the huge audience that Fortnite’s Twitter account has.
Epic Games finally decided to stop taking risks and give credit to the creators
Over the past few years, Epic Games has brought recognized dance moves to its Emotes in Fortnite on several occasions. However, some of these implementations eventually resulted in court cases for breach of copyright.
This time, while still having some active cases, the studio openly decided to recognize Harmon as the creator of these movements. However, it was not clear whether this action was purely and simply out of respect for the young woman’s work, or if both parties closed some kind of partnership.
Epic Games has already managed to close numerous partnerships with various personalities (and characters) from the gaming world, including the media Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who earlier this year received his own skin, emote and several other items in-game.
