Epic Games believes that Google overstated a Fortnite security flaw in an effort to hurt the company. The concerns over Fortnite's security were first raised in 2018 while Epic was battling Google over the 30% cut it takes from the Google Play Store.
- The statements come as part of the latest counterclaim in Epic's antitrust lawsuit against Google.
- Epic argues that Google ignored the traditional practice of giving developers time to fix security flaws instead of rushing to get the news out.
- Epic argues the security flaw was small and did not warrant loud alarms in the first place.
