[UPDATED] Fortnite Leaker, FNBRLeaks, Gets His Account Suspended – Did Epic Do It?

Dataminers have been played a huge role in getting the Fortnite comminity hyped up for the next update. Dataminers such as @FNBRLeaks have been leaking future updates for quite a while now. The folks behind these Twitter handles dig into Fortnite’s game files in an effort to find out what’s about to come in the next update. Since Epic has been pretty harsh with those whom they don’t like, the company has been a pretty good team of developers over the past year or so by interacting with their players frequently. It seems like Epic has found their target.

Update (Sep. 6, 2018): While @FNBRLeaks hasn’t given any reason for the suspension, it seems like his Twitter account is back up.

Earlier today, we noticed that the popular Twitter handle, @FNBRLeaks had suspended on Twitter. While there hasn’t been much of a controversy surrounding it yet, it seems like the folks over at Epic had become a bit too salty for the fact that the user was breaching into the files of the game revealing upcoming updates.

Whether you like the work dataminer put into Fortnite or not, at the end of the day, it’s all about business for Epic Games. While Epic, nor the community has chimed into the suspension of FNBRLeaks account yet, it seems like it would remain a mystery until the user behind FNBRLeaks and his close friends actually reveal some news regarding the suspension of his account.

While many might claim that these dataminers do build up some hype for these upcoming games, there’s no telling if this was done due to financial gains by Epic or if something has gone wrong with the Twitter user himself.

Given his credibility and how fast the Twitter handle was growing with the likes of TSM_Myth and many others following him, it doesn’t seem like the user may have a reason to do this himself.

If the folks over at Epic Games were involved in getting @FNBRLeaks account suspended, this could be the first sign of Epic showcasing its banhammer spirits on dataminers.
