Epic is going to release the Unreal Editor for Fortnite in an attempt to out-Roblox Roblox

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has revealed that Epic will, later this year, release the Unreal Editor for Fortnite. “The full capabilities that you’ve seen [in Unreal Engine] opened up so that anybody can build very high-quality game content and code and deploy it into Fortnite without having to do a deal with us,” Sweeney says in a new interview with FastCompany. “It’s open to everybody.”

What exactly this means can probably best be summarized as Roblox-ifying the Fortnite creator ecosystem. Sweeney is a big fan of how Roblox operates and, despite it having a lower media profile than Fortnite, it is one of the only real ‘metaverse’ contenders out there—and its appeal lies almost entirely in user-created content.
