Apple and Google in the sights of Epic Games! Another judicial process on the way

There seems to be no end to the legal battle between Epic Games and the giants Google and Apple due to the exclusion of Fortnite from the App Store and Play Store. Epic is now proceeding with yet another lawsuit against the two technologies, this time appealing to the UK courts.

Epic Games’ claims remain the same, claiming that Apple and Google abuse their dominant position in the market and align anti-competitive strategies to make sure that that domain remains in their hands.

Battle between Epic, Apple and Google is old

Epic vs Apple vs Google cool battle

This is Epic’s latest step in trying to return its popular Battle Royale Fortnite game to app stores. Along the way, the brand also states that its ultimate concern is to transform the functioning of mobile ecosystems, making them more just for all parties.

We recall that last August Epic added direct payment options for the mobile versions of Fortnite, thus circumventing the 30% commissions required by Apple and Google in their agreements with producers.

In retaliation, both tech companies removed Fortnite from their stores, prompting Epic’s first lawsuits against its former allies.

Epic now wants the Competition Appeal Tribunal to determine that removing the game from the App Store and Play Store is not legal, requiring it to be returned to the platforms in question. Likewise, it is Epic’s intention to establish that these practices are not fair and should be prohibited.

Epic calls for fairer practices on the part of Apple and Google

Regarding Apple, Epic wants the company to be prevented from restricting the download from the Epic Games Store on branded devices in the UK. Furthermore, the lawsuit aims to prevent Apple from requiring that all software and payments have to go through the App Store.

As far as Google is concerned, Epic wants to ban the obligation to pre-install the Play Store on all Android devices in the UK, putting an end to this store’s priority over others.

None of the complaints makes an explicit reference to claims for financial compensation for damages, however leaving any decision that the Court may deem to be fair.
