Epic Games CEO Calls Google ‘Irresponsible’

The arrival of Fortnite through alternative means to the tech giant Google’s application store has raised serious security concerns from the outset. If initially it was thought that the problem would be in users, the truth is that apparently, the installation application itself of Epic Games has serious security problems.

The flaw was discovered by the tech giant Google and seems to only affect the South Korean giant Samsung’s smartphones that have this game installed. Installing fake applications seems to be very straightforward with this flaw.

The well-known and popular battle royale game Fortnite is the game of the moment, but the Epic Game choices for its distribution were not the best. By placing the game available outside the Google Play Store, players have to open the doors to installing software from external sources, which is not advisable.

Now, as a result of a thorough evaluation of the tech giant Google itself, it has been proven that the Fortnite installer can be bypassed and used to install fake and external applications to this installer.

However, after the serious security flaw was found the Epic Games was quick to correct, the company’s CEO came now to show that the tech giant Google should have waited and announced the failure only after it had been fixed.

For many, Epic Games’ decision not to distribute Fortnite through the Google Play Store will not have been the right one or right choice. As the economic decision is understandable, but many criticize this choice for the security problems they will bring to users and the difficulty of updating them.

Now after the problem of the Fortnite installer is resolved, the CEO of Epic Games has publicly criticized the tech giant Google for its position and call it “irresponsible” for the position it took in disclosing the failure in such a short period of time.

Tim Sweeney revealed that Epic hastened to correct the flaw and to launch an update that corrected it, thus leaving users protected against existing problems.

He also explained that they tried to have the fault retained for some time, giving the margin necessary for the correction to be created and applied to the many Fortnite users.

The accusation is that the tech giant Google would only want to gain points from public opinion, thus reinforcing that Fortnite should have been released by the Google Play Store and not independently, as it turned out to be.

This is another among the many word exchanges between Epic Games through its CEO and Google trying to justify the decision to ignore the tech giant Google’s apps store and avoid paying 30% of sales made in the game.
