The ongoing legal battle between Apple and Epic Games took a new turn on Tuesday, with Apple now seeking damages from the studio for breach of contract (via CNBC). The move comes in response to Epic’s recent request for a preliminary injunction made sure of back in the App Store and force Apple to restore the developer account. Apple is seeking an unspecified amount of compensation.
“Epic’s lawsuit is nothing more than a fundamental disagreement over money, the technology giant said in its submission to the Northern District Court in California. “Even though Epic presents itself as a modern company Robin Hood, it is in fact a multi-billion dollar business that simply will not pay anything for the enormous value it receives from the App Store.”
