Fortnite: Epic Games sues Google and Apple over app store bans
Fortnite-maker Epic Games is taking legal action against Google after being banned from the Google Play app store, hours after doing the same with Apple. Apple and Google both removed the hit game from their app stores after Epic Games bypassed their payment systems, to avoid giving them a cut of sales. On Android phones, app stores other than Google Play are available, so it it still possible to install Fortnite from Epic Games' own launcher app and the Samsung Galaxy app store, making it less restrictive than Apple's system. "But Google forced OnePlus to renege on the deal, citing Google's 'particular concern' about Epic having the ability to install and update mobile games while 'bypassing the Google Play Store'," it said. "In a statement, Apple said:"Epic has had apps on the App Store for a decade, and have benefited from the App Store ecosystem - including it's tools, testing, and distribution that Apple provides to all developers.
