🙊 After Epic sued Google, Google thought about buying Epic
If you can’t beat them...buy them?
That appears to have been the strategy of Google: In new court filings dissected by The Verge, Epic revealed the search engine giant wanted to buy them out. Epic highlighted it as a monopolistic tactic to “fence out competition.”
Epic lobbed another accusation, too: It stated Google offered them a special deal to have Fortnite in the Google Play store and not available through so-called independent sideloading.
Google denies everything
A company spokesperson told The Verge Epic’s lawsuit “mischaracterizes our business conversations.”
The drama keeps picking up for Epic in its lawsuit vs. Google, which was recently packaged with an antitrust suit against Google from the government. But we’re still waiting on the big decision in the Apple case.
