London - The embattled creators of 'Fortnite' have hit out at Prince Harry after he claimed the video game was "created to addict".
The game has been caught in controversy following a raft of safety concerns about its addictiveness and use by online predators as a platform to target children.
But bosses from developer Epic Games told the digital, culture, media and sports committee that the prince’s views were a "mischaracterisation" of the game.
At a meeting on youth mental health in April, the Duke of Sussex had said: "'Fortnite' shouldn’t be allowed.
"It’s created to addict – an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible."
