Epic Games have sued a former QA tester for leaking Fortnite Season 4 details before they were set to launch.
Thomas Hannah is accused of breaking a non-disclosure agreement he signed when he was first began employment at Epic Games.
It's claimed that in December last year, he passed on confidential information to a third party who then leaked everything onto Reddit.
In the lawsuit obtained by Polygon, Epic Games is filing for an injunction against Hannah and a sum "reflecting the maximum amount of damages" permitted under North Carolina law.
Hannah's defence has admitted to him breaking the agreement but says he's not to blame for what the third party posted, who aren't being sued.
It was just three weeks after he left the company that a Reddit post leaked details for the Season 4 meteor strike, which was set to commence days after.
