Epic Games Launches #FreeFortnite Campaign: 'Stop 2020 From Becoming 1984' [Video]

Epic Games has launched a #FreeFortnite campaign against Apple, complete with a video calling for users to join the fight to stop 2020 form becoming '1984'.

Apple has blocked Fortnite from the App Store, removing everyone’s ability to install and update the game on iOS devices, while instructing Epic to “remove the ‘Epic direct payment’ feature”. Apple is keeping prices high so they can collect 30% of your payments, and is blocking Fortnite in order to prevent Epic from passing on the savings from direct payments to you! Join the fight against @AppStore on social media with #FreeFortnite

This morning Epic Games launched a direct payment feature in Fortnite that saved users 20% but didn't give Apple 30% of its revenue. Apple promptly pulled the app from the App Store but the company was expecting this response and was ready with a lawsuit accusing Apple of anti-competitive restraints and monopolistic practices.

Unfortunately, that’s part of the problem. Apple has shareholders and they have to keep their shareholders happy. If they lower prices, the SEC can step in if Apple is not making decisions with the best interest of their shareholders in mind. That’s what happens when you’re a publicly traded company. In the end, it screws the consumer, you and me.
