Fortnite creator attacks Google's chokehold on Android market in lawsuit over V-Bucks payments

The move comes in response to Epic's recent request for a preliminary injunction to put Fornite back on the App Store and force Apple to restore its developer account.

Australia has become the latest country to look into Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store policies, after the country's competition regulatory agency revealed it was examining the digital storefronts for antitrust behavior. Following the implementation of a payment system within Fortnite which circumvented Apple's own, the popular Battle Royale shooter was removed from the iPhone creator's App Store. In addition they cite how each day lively iOS customers have declined by as a lot as 60% following the app's preliminary removing.

There was even a latest proposal made in Russian Federation during which lawmakers are asking that Apple's lower be restricted to 20%, and that a third of that 20% will even be paid for and used for coaching companies for these within the IT discipline. In the aftermath, Apple banned Fortnite from the App Store.

"While Epic and its CEO take issue with the terms on which Apple has since 2008 provided the App Store to all developers, this does not provide cover for Epic to breach binding contracts, dupe a long-time business partner, pocket commissions that rightfully belong to Apple, and then ask this Court to take a judicial sledgehammer to one of the 21st Century's most innovative business platforms simply because it does not maximize Epic's revenues".

In the end, if Apple wins this case, Epic claims it can compensate the iOS manufacturer for damage through regular monetary damage.

Epic use Short offer for "Epic Direct Payments" at the end of August iOS version Fortnite As evidence of "consumer demand" for this payment processing competition, Epic wrote that 53.4% of iOS users chose the direct payment option for two weeks.

In other words, it's not looking terribly likely that this injunction will result in Fortnite being restored to the App Store.
