Fortnite Gets Facebook Support

Fortnite Gets Facebook Support

Facebook wants to join the lawsuit filed against Apple by Epic Games; the producer of the popular battle royale game Fortnite. As a matter of fact, the company aims to join Epic Games in the case and share details about the iPhone and iPad manufacturer’s policies that hurt businesses. Thus, Epic Games will gain an important ally for Fortnite.

This step taken by Facebook came about the day the firm promoted a US-wide print ad campaign that criticized Apple‘s privacy policies. “We really think it is important for the court to understand the far-reaching impact of Apple’s unfair policies,” Steve Satterfield, director of privacy and public policy at Facebook, said in a conference call on the issue Wednesday. Fortnite is getting an important ally in this war.

According to Cnet’s report; Apple executives said that Facebook wanted to collect as much information as possible about users, regardless of their privacy policy. Epic chose to refrain from commenting on this topic. Facebook‘s involvement in the issue between Epic and Apple; may cause a change in society’s perspective on these legal battles. The starting point for the litigation process that started in August was the up to 30% commissions received by Apple; for purchases made by users in apps such as Fortnite. We will see together whether Facebook‘s attitude towards the case will change over time. Because the legal struggle between the two companies is expected to come to an end next year in courtrooms.
