Free Fortnite

Fortnite, developed by Epic Games, has been a staple in the gaming industry since its release. However, the term “Free Fortnite” has taken on a new meaning, transcending the game itself. It represents a movement advocating for change and challenging the norms of the gaming industry.

A jury in California found in favor of the publisher of the popular game, concluding that Google controls the market for both the distribution of Android applications and the payment services offered by those programs.

Epic Games won a significant victory against Google on Monday, December 11. It’s more than three years after it began its uprising against Apple and Google. The jury in California was persuaded that the tech giant is abusing its monopoly on the mobile applications market, harming developers.

Through Android and iOS, Epic claims that Google and Apple force application developers to utilize its payment processors and download platforms, the Play Store and App Store. And they demand unreasonably large (30%) fees from them.

“Victory over Google!” announced Tim Sweeney on X, the former Twitter platform. In 2020, the CEO of the company that publishes the popular game Fortnite declared war on Google and Apple. These two companies control the majority of the world’s mobile market. The court will start working on retaliatory actions in January. I appreciate your support, everyone! Bonus Fortnite!” he continued.

Following four weeks of testimony, the jury found in favor of Epic Games on all counts. They concluded that Google does have a monopoly on the market for both payment services.
