EPIC GAMES SUE APPLE, GOOGLE FOR YANKING FORTNITE OFF APP STORES

Apple and Google on Thursday removed popular videogame Fortnite from their app stores for violating the in-app payment guidelines, prompting developer Epic Games to file federal antitrust lawsuits challenging their rules.

Apple and Google cited a direct payment feature rolled out on the Fortnite app earlier in the day as the violation. Epic sued in US court seeking no money from Apple or Google, but rather injunctions that would end many of the companies’ practices related to their app stores.
