The legal battle started when Epic Games bypassed the 30% fees charged on every transaction in App Store and introduced their own in-app payment system in Fortnite where they claimed to offer the “V-Bucks” at a discounted price.
After Epic Games tried to bypass this fee, Apple App Store and Google Play Store removed the game from their respective stores and while Fortnite was still available on all the android devices through the game’s official website, there was no way to get this game back on Apple devices.
This started a battle between Apple and Epic Games where the latter company took various steps to get back the game on the Apple App store.
Epic Games started with launching a hashtag running by the name “#FreeFortnite” and urged their players and fans to take a stand against apple.
Apple has finally retaliated with their own counterclaims filed against Epic Games.
According to The Verge, the Epic Games are supposed to reply by 18th September and the full hearing will be conducted on 28th September.
