All I want to know is, is there a treatment for it?
Calex Légal is building a case that is similar to a class-action lawsuit against tobacco companies.
Montreal's Calex Légal law firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of two parents against Fortnite's parent company, Epic Games, according to CBC. The suit claims that Fortnite causes the brain to release dopamine at a rate that's similar to cocaine, leading to chemical addiction. The parents and their legal team believe that Epic Games purposely created Fortnite to be as addictive as possible.
"Epic Games, when they created Fortnite, for years and years, hired psychologists - they really dug into the human brain and they really made the effort to make it as addictive as possible," an attorney for Calex Légal, Alessandra Esposito Chartrand, explained. "They knowingly put on the market a very, very addictive game which was also geared toward youth."
