The Daily Moot: Epic Wins Lawsuit

News Picks

1. Epic Lawsuit Update

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot: Epic Wins Lawsuit image 2

Epic has won part 1 of its lawsuit against Apple. After Microsoft came out in support of Epic by asserting that Epic’s Unreal Engine is critical for game developers and creators, a judge has ruled in favor of Epic, granting the company a temporary restraining order against Apple. Specifically, the judge said that hindering Epic’s ability to maintain Unreal Engine would cause “significant damage to the gaming industry” but also said that the issue with Fortnite seemed to be “of Epic’s own making.” While this doesn’t mean that Fortnite will be returning to the App Store, it does mean that Epic will maintain its developer rights until the next stage of the lawsuit hits the courts in April of next year. The legal teams for Epic and Apple are set to reconvene on September 28.

  2. Black Ops: Cold War Warzone Reveal?   Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is set for its big reveal tomorrow, but it looks like Activision may be planning something a bit unique for the event. In a cryptic Tweet posted today, Call of Duty seems to be suggesting that the Black Ops: Cold War reveal will happen within the world of Warzone. It’s unclear exactly how this would play out, but the message is rather straightforward: “New contract. Coming to Verdansk. Aug 26.” The Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War reveal is set to take place tomorrow at 10:30am PT.

  3. Summer Games Done Quick Ends   The 2020 edition of Summer Games Done Quick has come to a close. The speedrunning charity drive managed to raise $2.3M this year, with proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders which provides emergency medical and humanitarian aid across the world. While the $2.3M mark is certainly impressive, the number is actually down from last year’s event which raised over $3M. Since the annual event started in 2010, GDQ has raised over $27M in total for charities like the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Direct Relief, and AbleGamers.

  4. New Nintendo Switch?   A new version of the Nintendo Switch is on the way. Set to enter production later this year, the newest edition of the Switch will have a better graphical display and improved “interactivity.” Not many details about the upcoming console have been announced yet, so it’s unclear what hardware changes will be made in order to achieve these improvements. The new Nintendo Switch is slated to hit retail shelves early next year.

  5. EA Steam Achievements   EA has added more than 1,000 new achievements to their Steam games. These achievements were previously locked to the Origin versions of these games, despite the fact that EA transferred much of its library to Steam earlier this year. Some of the games which now have full Steam achievements include Titanfall 2, Need for Speed, Battlefield, and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Any achievements you’ve earned will be automatically applied retroactively, meaning that you don’t have to worry about redoing achievements that you’ve already completed.

  • Errorname404 LV.20 Game Critic Aug 26, 2020, 11:36 AM

    Rolling nuggie cutie  the bad thing about fortnite is it's incredibly toxic community of clickbaiting garbage and high vocal pitched man baby cunts. the game is pretty okay, but the community makes everyone just hate the game in general.

  • Set_lmBae LV.4 Lurker Aug 27, 2020, 10:23 AM

  • ErikPlays43 LV.28 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 07:02 AM

    Epic Games's Fortnite is just a gaming monopoly for teens. Like Apple is a phone monopoly, Google/Facebookis a advertising monopoly, these companies are not anyone's friend. If Fortnite died other games can thrive.

  • Zhamrok LV.20 JUST SEND IT Aug 26, 2020, 07:03 AM

    You don’t know what you’re saying but cool

  • ErikPlays43 LV.28 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 07:06 AM

    I dont think you know who I am, if you did then you would be aware I know what I'm saying. You might not know what I am saying, but I do cause why would I say it then?

  • Zhamrok LV.20 JUST SEND IT Aug 26, 2020, 07:06 AM

    Who are you then?

  • ErikPlays43 LV.28 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 07:07 AM

    I review claims and verify if they are correct.

  • Zhamrok LV.20 JUST SEND IT Aug 26, 2020, 07:10 AM

    ErikPlays43  Explain how it’s a monopoly then

  • ErikPlays43 LV.28 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 07:35 AM

    Zhamrok  I am taking the assumption that you are a child/teen, so I am going to explain this as easily as I can. A monopoly is when a company is the only main supplier of a certain service. Fortnite takes a vast majority of the market for Battle Royale games. Thats okay. No one hurts from one person. But when a market trys to stop others from doing the same thing, or try to put an end on other companies, for them to control a market themselves this is a monopoly. Apple & Google are already having antitrust courts to settle, while Epic Games jumps in the mix to ruin it. Because if they can control the fees and the market, they can gain shares for themselves without compilation, starting more hearings about the antitrust laws, if they should be tightened more.

  • Zhamrok LV.20 JUST SEND IT Aug 26, 2020, 07:36 AM

    ErikPlays43  I know what a monopoly means

  • pd_lightwolf LV.23 Let’s play R6! Aug 26, 2020, 07:38 AM

    Cartoon characters breaking laws of physics and being overall shit vs. realistic character, using actual real life mechanics and being a generally good game I think I’m going to say you’re wrong here MW is definitely real

  • VRolook LV.25 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 07:01 AM

    but its not a real game if fortnite isnt

    can't wait for epic to lose. Sweeney really deserves it. Do some research. All he cares about is profits and beating steam. Steam has done more for people than epic ever will.

  • DaPi LV.32 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 06:58 AM

    They need to give free games to have people join their market

  • mangafan05 LV.9 Nomad Aug 26, 2020, 07:01 AM

    I know right. Nobody really went out of their way to buy anything on epic. The only thing they have going is free stuff 😂

  • DaPi LV.32 Happy 2020! Aug 26, 2020, 08:07 AM

    Remember when Metro Exodus was supposed to only be on Epic?

    lmao. yeah

  • Lord Diabol LV.22 Game Critic Aug 26, 2020, 06:45 AM

    I dont care for Fortnite, it's not a bad game it's just not for me. my problem with this lawsuit and how everyone views it is, I dont think many people realize how many other games use Unreal Engine. if Apple is able to ban and still make money off one game for it they'll eventually go after more mobile games and try to increase profit margins through a chain of law suits that would already have precedent.

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Aug 26, 2020, 07:29 AM

    I dont think people understand what this lawsuit really means for mobile.
    This lawsuit is more than just freeing fornite, it is making a stand against a ongoing monopoly.
    Hope that more gaming developers step in, I think the future is bright for mobile gaming in the future
