In August, Epic Games launched a lawsuit against Apple, saying that its insistence that app developers use the iOS App Store’s built-in payment system, which gives Apple a 30 percent cut of all revenues, amounts to “monopolistic practices.” It also sought, and was granted, a restraining order preventing Apple from blocking its access to Apple accounts for Unreal Engine development, although a request to force Apple to return Fortnite to the store was rejected.

Today, Apple fired back with a countersuit (via Polygon) in which it says that Epic’s suit “is nothing more than a basic disagreement over money” that followed a failed effort to reach a side deal aimed at exempting the studio from obligations.
