After several months in legal conflict against Apple, today it was revealed that Google has sued Epic Games. Through a statement, the company behind Android has indicated that those responsible for Fortnite they have enriched themselves at their expense by entering your own payment method in battle royale.
Unlike the conflict with Apple, Google is only looking for monetary compensation. Similarly, this company does not force developers to use its Play Store as the main store for Android. This was what a representative of this company commented on the matter:
“Epic has unfairly enriched itself at Google’s expense. They choose this store when given a series of channels and applications on Android. Google supports the choice from Android itself, Google Play policies and Google agreements with developers and device manufacturers ”.
Google ensures that they have no problems with Epic Games launching an application of Fortnite on Android without payments on your devices, but always from outside the Play Store. Let’s remember that when all this began, the battle royale was withdrawn from this store, but it remained available on these devices by other means, and to this day it continues to receive updates.
In related topics, here we tell you when I could return Fortnite to the App Store. Similarly, a movie of this game could already be in development.
At the moment there is no clear solution to this problem, and considering that the conflict with Apple has resulted in great losses of money for Epic Games, it is very likely that this case will have a similar outcome. Unlike the previous dispute, Google only seeks compensation, and its policies could win them in court.
