Parents claim kids won’t go night-night because of Fortnite

The Canada Supreme Court on Wednesday authorized a class-action lawsuit filed by a group of parents in Quebec, Canada, who claim their children will not eat, sleep or shower because they are addicted to playing Epic Games’ Fortnite.

The lawsuit was filed in 2019, with lawyers claiming that Epic Games hired psychologists to assist in making the game as addictive as possible, and provided players with no warnings of these effects, according to various media outlets.

One of the plaintiff’s children reportedly racked up 7,700 hours in the game in two years, according to media reports.

“We plan to fight this in court. We believe the evidence will show that this case is meritless,” Epic Games said in a statement, published by Yahoo News.
