Valve refuses to help Apple in the battle against Epic Games

Apple seems ready to use all the tools at its disposal in the battle against Epic Games. Apparently Cupertino's company asked Valve for data from Steam that could play against Epic's complaints in the lawsuit about monopolistic practices on the App Store.

Apple and Valve recently delivered a letter in court stating that they have not reached an agreement on this issue, with the latter refusing to provide the data requested by the technology company.

Valve does not want to get between Apple and Epic Games

Apparently Apple asked for information on Valve's annual financial performance, in addition to data on the availability of more than 436 games. The intention was to measure competition in this space, in order to dismantle Epic's arguments and accusations.

Valve refused the request, arguing that it was confidential information and that it would place a considerable burden on its employees.

Furthermore, Valve indicates that the producers and producers of Steam control the price and content of games, so Apple would be using Steam as an easier way to access the information it wants.

Valve's position may weaken Apple

It was also left open the debate on whether Apple really needs this type of data to sharpen its point of view, with Valve's argument not competing in the mobile app store market.

It will now be up to the responsible judge to assess who is right in this exchange of arguments. If Valve wins, Apple is left without access to data it hoped it could use in court.

This hypothesis may force Cupertino to change his strategy, even if the importance of this data for the process in question has not been clear.
