Messaging around these rules and “intellectual property,” however, still is a little confusing. Map creators in other games, for example, have long seen recreations of iconic locations from previous games and other franchises. It seems clear that an exchange of money over such things could raise legal issues, but mandates that unmonetized maps won’t be allowed are raising concerns among some creators who are simply creating tributes or reimaginings of classic game locations. Kotaku has reached out to Epic Games to clarify how strict this policy actually is, though it’s possible we may see things heavily inspired by obvious sources that are simply named something else that’s clever.
