After fans recognized an Infinity Blade weapon coming to Fortnite, it turns out the teaser was also a way to pay tribute to an series that was coming to the end. Epic doesn’t feel like it is capable of maintaining a high standard of support with Infinity Blade, so the game’s trilogy is being removed from stores.
In the week, Epic Games teased the new sword coming to Fortnite and fans quickly recognized it was a tool used in Infinity Blade. At the time, this just seemed like a crossover of two Epic titles, but an official Epic blog post revealed the truth:
At Epic we strive to put players first and to provide a supported, full-fledged experience in every game we publish. With the development of Spyjinx and other projects, it has become increasingly difficult for our team to support the Infinity Blade series at a level that meets our standards.
Owners of the game can still play and Epic Games will continue to support Infinity Blade 3 with updated Clash Mobs.
