Story Highlights

  • A gaming archivist has discovered a canceled Fortnite spin-off mobile game from 2014.
  • The game was later transformed into a now-defunct 2017 mobile game, Battle Breakers.
  • Battle Breakers was closed down by Epic Games in 2022.

In a recent episode of retrieving hidden industry documents, a gaming archivist has found out a canceled Fortnite spin-off game from 2014. The project was named “Fortnite World Explorers” by developer Epic Games and was soon canned. Epic later integrated it into a now-shut-down 2017 mobile game, Battle Breakers.

In an X (formerly Twitter) post, gaming archivist, MrTalida shared their latest discovery with details and pictures. According to the source, Fortnite World Explorers featured a tile-based combat system, an expensive open-world map, a myriad of different missions, and plentiful heroes and monsters for players to collect. The game also had a home-based mechanism that allowed the player to build a rooster of heroes and slowly expand control over the map.

Further in the thread, MrTalida expressed their conjecture that Fortnite World Explorers later evolved into a fantasy JRPG called “Endless World.” Subsequently, another X/Twitter account Fortnite STW News joined the conversation, suggesting that Endless Worlds underwent a further transformation and ultimately became the now-shuttered 2017 mobile game, Battle Breakers.

The information was finally confirmed when another X/Twitter user TR_Pox1016 keenly compared the audio libraries of the scrapped 2014 game and now defunct Battle Breakers, revealing a substantial similarity. Summarizing the collected information, MrTalida claimed that Battle Breakers was indeed the canceled Fortnite World Explorers.

Battle Breakers was a sci-fi adventure role-playing game, launched in 2019 by Epic Games for Android, Microsoft Windows, and iOS. Unfortunately, the game couldn’t open to an ideal reception having earned a Metacritic score of 2.2. Due to a negative reception and a lack of engagement, Epic Games officially ceased the title on December 30, 2022.
