After the announcement of its decision to stop the development of Paragon, Epic Games assured fans that Fortnite will not meet the same fate and that it will continue supporting it. Not only that, but it appears that the end of Paragon’s development will also allow the team to bring even more content to it.
As Epic Games stated:
“You may have read of our recent decision to stop development on Paragon. We want to assure you this is not the case for the Fortnite Save the World campaign. Rather, this decision allows us to build more features and bring you more content at a faster pace.”
Our guess is that Epic Games ended the development of Paragon on purpose, and in order to focus entirely on Fortnite. After all, Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode has attracted a lot of players on all platforms. This is a mere assumption but everything points towards this.
A year ago, Epic Games stated that Paragon was growing and that it was attracting more and more players. However, and after the big success of Fortnite: Battle Royale, it became apparent that more players are now interested in a battle royale game than a MOBA. After all, there aren’t currently a lot of battle royale games and it makes perfect sense for Epic to focus on Fortnite in order to establish a huge audience.
