Epic Games and Apple are locked in a legal battle at the moment, with no end in sight. And earlier this year, Epic tried to broaden the scope of its action into the United Kingdom. However, it turns out that won’t be happening after all.
Epic Games currently finds itself locked in a legal battle with both Apple and Google. And that was by choice. While it was rumored, and expected, to be the case right from the start, the CEO of Epic Games has confirmed it was a planned, and well-organized, effort to try and change Apple’s and Google’s digital storefronts.
“Free Fortnite” is the rallying cry Epic Games has been calling out for months now, trying to get people to listen to their demands. Apple (and Google) pulled the massively popular battle royale game Fortnite from their digital storefronts earlier this year (due to actions on Epic Games’ part), and, ever since, Epic Games has been trying to force Apple and Google’s hands to get the game back on those platforms.
