If you’re a fan of battle royale games, surely you’ve played Fortnite before, the Epic Games title that has become a real sensation on mobile platforms such as mobile phones.
If that’s the case, also know that Epic sued Manzana in August 2020 in the US District Court for the Northern District of California over Manzana’s practices in the iOS App Store.
Due to this legal issue, Fortnite is no longer available on Manzana devices, but can also be found outside of the Google Play Store.
This is because Epic Games planned to file a lengthy, 63-page lawsuit against Google alleging anti-competitive practices and a monopoly on in-app payments.
In the case of Google, the 30% commission also applies to apps and in-app products, which was one of the reasons Fortnite was not available on the Play Store when it was released.
