Epic Games Sues Apple In Australia

Epic Games has filed a lawsuit against Apple in federal court in Australia. Fortnite publisher said the defendant was violating local consumer protection laws. This was announced by the portal PC Gamer. Earlier, a similar trial began in the United States.

On August 13, Epic Games added the ability to make in-app purchases in Fortnite bypassing Apple’s system to prevent the company from charging any transaction fees. After that, the game was removed from the App Store and Google Play, and the developers of the “battle royale” filed claims against the platform holders. Epic Games asked the court to order Apple and Google to return Fortnite to their stores without rolling back the controversial feature until the end of the process, but was refused.

On August 29, Apple blocked Epic Games’ App Store account while retaining support for the Unreal Engine. The company has also filed a counterclaim against the creators of Fortnite seeking compensation for losses incurred following the addition of an alternative in-app purchase method.

In September 2020, Australian authorities launched their own investigation into Apple and Google. It aims to investigate compliance with antitrust and consumer protection laws in the App Store and Google Play.
