Apple has filed a lawsuit seeking damages made by a breach of contract by Epic Games in the latest fight with the developer. Last week Epic asked a judge to force Apple to reinstate Fortnite on the App Store and prevent further measures by Apple to crack down on Unreal Engine.
In response, Apple is now firing back. In its latest court filing Apple says that it will now seek a monetary payment from Epic, for an unspecified amount over damages caused by Epic’s breach of contract. In its opening remarks, Apple says Epic’s drama is nothing short of a disagreement over money and wanting to feel special.
Epic’s lawsuit is nothing more than a basic disagreement over money. Although Epic portraysApple
itself as a modern corporate Robin Hood, in reality it is a multi-billion dollar enterprise that simply wants to pay nothing for the tremendous value it derives from the App Store. Epic’s demands for special treatment and cries of “retaliation” cannot be reconciled with its flagrant breach of contract and its own business practices, as it rakes in billions by taking commissions on game developers’ sales and charging consumers up to $99.99 for bundles of “V-Bucks.”
