Exciting Events held a Norwich Fornite Live festival, using intellectual belongings and trademarks of Epic Games, the Fortnite maker, without the official license from the owner. Epic was not associated with any part of the event. As the result, Epic pursued legal action against the company in the High Court of London yesterday.

According to The Guardian, Shaun Lord, director of the company, via an email to ticket holders that: “These proceedings by Epic Games has had a catastrophic impact on the company’s ability to trade, which has forced Exciting Events Limited to cease all trading activities immediately and the director of Exciting Events will now seek to limit the losses to third parties as far as possible”.

Attendees said that the festival was a massive mess. Ticket’s price was extremely high, attractions were awful. About 2,800 people were there, but there were not many rooms for children to play; only 4 children could stand for such terrible archery in the event. Especially, not many things there were related to Fortnite, despite using Fortnite characters and logos to advertise widely. Many parents left the queue and wanted refunds as the event’s groundwork didn’t like what was promoted before.

The company confirmed that its properties will be changed to cash. Funds will be shared among creditors, firstly with HMRC. If there are any remaining funds, they will be divided equally for other creditors, including customers who agree individually to have refunds and who got cancellation emails earlier than 10 am, February 17th. Newark ticket holders and Fortnite Live Spalding will be mechanically added in creditor list without any acceptable exceptions.

He said that the company had plans for 2 more Fortnite Live events in the future, despite all the personal and national threats and abuses experienced after the event recently. However, the insolvency implies that in the future, there won’t any be Fortnite Live events.
