    According to a new report published today, Epic Games employees working on the company's success, Fortnite, have had to maintain brutal work schedules, with many weeks of 70 to 100 hours to keep up with the success of the game.  Fortnite's rapid content publishing program had a cost to employees' physical and mental health, and some were fired from Epic for refusing to work so many hours, which the company says are "voluntary." According to a detailed Polygon report, the great success of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode turned it into a cultural move and an economic powerhouse, earning millions of dollars per day.  But Epic employees have said that keeping the game has meant brutal work schedules. "I work an average of 70 hours a week," said one employee to Polygon, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "There are probably at least 50 or even 100 more people in Epic working those hours.  I know people who spend 100 hours a week. "  This employee said that, in theory, Epic grants its employees unlimited rest time, but in practice it is difficult or even impossible to take advantage of that. "Everything has to be done immediately," said one employee. "We are not allowed to devote time to anything.  If something breaks, a weapon, for example, we can not simply turn it off and fix it with the next patch.  It should be fixed immediately and, at the same time, we continue working on the patch next week.  It's brutal. "  The employees said that if the deadlines are not met because someone took a license or even the weekends off, that person would be fired.  An Epic spokesperson told Polygon that Fortnite's unexpected success "had created difficulties" and that employees "are working very hard on Fortnite and other Epic efforts." But "the situation is extreme, like the 100-hour workweeks, it's something incredibly rare, and if that happens, we seek to remedy the problem immediately to avoid recurrence." #Fortnite #epicgames #videogames #gamergirls #gaming #pc #pcgaming #consoles #gamerboy #gamers #gamer #gamergirl #gamerboys #gamerlife #gamingcommunity #gamingislife #retrocollective #pcgamers
