The mobile version of Fortnite Battle Royale now features a loading screen that tells kids to not play the game during class.
Epic Games community manager K.L. Smith shared an image of the new loading screen, which now includes the message: “Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class,” in a post on Twitter.
The new loading screen was added in response to reports from teachers that Fortnite’s release on mobile has proven to be a major distraction in schools. In fact, the Mr. Hillman mentioned in the loading screen is actually a reference to a teacher who posted the following message, which has since been deleted, on the Fortnite Reddit (via Polygon):
First, I love your game. My friends from college and I play pretty much every night. One problem, since mobile came out my students won’t stop playing in class. Idk if it’s possible, but I told them I’d write you and they didn’t believe me. Could you add this to the loading screen for a couple days to mess with them? ‘Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class.’
The mobile version of Epic Games’ hit battle royale game has been wildly popular. In less than 24 hours after launch, it topped the iOS charts in 47 countries.
