Epic Games to Appeal Ruling in App Store Antitrust Lawsuit

Posted by · 3254 views · Translate

Epic Games plans to appeal today's ruling in its antitrust App Store lawsuit against Apple. The company lost on all accounts except one which will now require Apple to allow developers to link out to alternative methods of payment.

CEO Tim Sweeney issued the following statement...

-----
Today’s ruling isn't a win for developers or for consumers. Epic is fighting for fair competition among in-app payment methods and app stores for a billion consumers.

Fortnite will return to the iOS App Store when and where Epic can offer in-app payment in fair competition with Apple in-app payment, passing along the savings to consumers.

Thanks to everyone who put so much time and effort into the battle over fair competition on digital platforms, and thanks especially to the court for managing a very complex case on a speedy timeline. We will fight on.
