Fortnite Chapter 3 is nearly upon us, and Epic is hoping to keep the content of that release a secret – so now the developers are asking leakers not to leak anything. Some of the game’s most prominent dataminers have reported receiving messages from Epic asking them not to leak content from the battle royale game during the upcoming downtime.
iFireMonkey, ShiinaBR, and HypeX all report receiving a message from Epic asking them not to post Chapter 3 leaks. The dataminers are currently in discussions with the devs about how this could be realistically achieved. Some are still deciding whether they intend to follow Epic’s guidance at all.
“I have been trying to think about how this would work for a bit today,” iFireMonkey says, “and how I feel is that if anyone is able to leak the update I see no reason for me to not post leaks, since no matter what people would be able to post it anyways. We will have to wait and see.”
