Epic Games submits Apple complaint to UK watchdog
Epic Games on Tuesday filed a complaint about Apple to a British competition watchdog for their “monopolistic practices.”
The video game maker accuses Apple of anticompetitive behavior and establishing strict rules on app distribution and payments, which is a violation under British laws.
The watchdog is already probing the tech giant for its stranglehold on the app market.
By kneecapping the competition and exerting its monopoly power over app distribution and payments, Apple strips U.K. consumers of the right to choose how and where they get their apps, while locking developers into a single marketplace that lets Apple charge any commission rate they choose,” said Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney in a statement.
