The developer of Fortnite is Epic Games, the game uses the engine called as Unreal Engine 4 which is also created by Epic. There are two game modes in Fornite, one called Save the World which is the PVP version and Fortnite Battle Royale where you land from a bus in a small map where you get to fight with other 99 players. The game was initially developed as a passion project and was announced back in 2011 by the devs, but was not opened to the public. Delayed further the development kept going and in 2015 Epic Games Vice President of Publishing Mike Fischer said that they “announced this game too soon”, and that its lengthy development period was due to “very good reasons.”
Lot about the history of the game, the announcement of Paid early access was made in July 25, 2017 for Save the world. In September 2017 they announced the Battle Royale mode which blew up. Since then, Epic has been sued by PUBG multiple times for copying their game. *lul*
