This isn’t the first time that Epic Games has done something to help keep the attention on discussions of race in America.
Last month Epic Games decided to delay the launch of Fortnite season 3, and the season 2 live event, in the wake of widespread Black Lives Matters protests that began in the US before taking place across the globe.
The protests, which are still going on, were sparked following the killing of George Floyd.
The 46-year-old died in police custody with horrifying footage recorded by a bystander showing a police officer kneeling on his neck.
Floyd’s plea of “I can’t breathe”, that was captured in the footage, has since become a rallying cry that has been heard at protests worldwide.
Four sacked police officers have since been charged in relation to the killing of Floyd, who was a father to a six-year-old daughter.
