Mobile players are eager to play the game on their iOS devices, and now, a new ruling has just been laid in court in Australia which is a massive early victory for Epic over Apple. But, there’s still lots of way to go.
Epic secures major victory in court
This court battle between these two major corporations has been ongoing within the United States, but also in Australia. There has been some progress made down under.
The basic premise of how this legal action between Epic and Apple initially began, was due to the fact that Fortnite added a payment system within their mobile game, which allowed players to negate the 30% App Store fee that players would normally have to pay.
Apple then suddenly removed the game from their App Store, and then, Epic sued the company and have been in legal battles in court since.
Dexerto says “However, Apple appealed the case in Australia, arguing that the case should be limited to the US District Court. However, Epic counter-appealed arguing that a separate trial in Australia is justified as it is a public policy concern.
On July 9, the Federal Court in Australia ruled in favor of Epic Games, and the trial there will go ahead.”
Apple plans to appeal the decision however, with a spokesperson stating: “The initial decision in April from Australia’s Federal Court correctly ruled that Epic should be held to the agreement it made to resolve disputes in California. We respectfully disagree with the ruling made today and plan to appeal.”
Both sides are still waiting for this judgment to be laid down within the US courts, which should come within the next couple of months.

And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
It’s very easy to say that GTA 6 has become one of the most-anticipated games of all time. Despite Rockstar remaining mum on all things rumors and leaks, some of which seem more credible than others, some employees may have let GTA news slip through the cracks. “Primarily, a couple of employees known for their work on Grand Theft Auto games made headlines in recent weeks after some of their social media posts surfaced, appearing to hint at the next Grand Theft Auto title.” GTA 6 clues on social media Notably, Soundtrack Manager and Music Supervisor Tony Mesones shared a photo of Miami to
Joining Call of Duty in an effort to add some suspicion to proceedings, Fortnite is allegedly due to get an Among Us style mode. Initially released in June 2018, the indie hit from developers InnerSloth experienced an immense boom in popularity in 2020 as streamers from across the globe flocked to it. Some streamers have bailed on the party game, but there are plenty still playing it on a regular basis. Among Us had a crossover with Fall Guys in March of 2021, but it now it looks like Fortnite will also link up with the game. When is Among
Dexerto says “Mariduena holds close ties with Dobrik having grown up together and takes a leadership role within his company. She was asked about the accusations very early on in her appearance in the interview that was published on July 22. Mariduena still describes Dobrik as her “bestie” said she’s “probably the closest person to David” and “know him the best out of anybody.” She described the allegations as “really sh**ty” and said, “it sucks when you see someone who’s actually a good person getting accused of really terrible things.” When asked if she “stood behind him 100%,” she replied
