Google has a “Fortnite Task Force” against Epic Games

Epic Games long ago made the decision to skip the publication of Fortnite on the Play Store in 2018, arriving directly on the Galaxy App Store. Now it turns out that this move may have spurred the creation of a “Fortnite Task Force“within Google.

Details of the task force surfaced in a legal filing made by Epic this week, citing internal Google documents. This task force apparently was formed in 2018 and rumor has it that she met every day in an attempt to take on Fortnite.

Google’s task force is alleged to have taken advantage of a can security issue for users who sideload Fortnite. The document states that Google grants to an app maker 90 days to address a security problem like this, but that the research company revealed the problem to the media in nine days.

Epic CEO Tim Sweeney confirmed at the time of the reveal that he had released a update to fix the problem, but which Google refused to hold back revelation of the defect until the update was installed more widely.
