The court battle between the devs of Fortnite and Apple continues, but that doesn't mean that the boss of Epic Games can't enjoy his work. In an interview for NPR, Tim Sweeney admitted that he plays Fortnite.
As the creator of the popular Battle Royale confessed, he played over 1600 matches using a nickname known only to himself. During these incognito games he usually chose the Jelly skin. When playing with random people, he often surprises them, because, as he said, players using his favorite skin are perceived as not very good. "It's OK," Sweeny says.
Sweeney also talked about how he sold his collection of luxury cars to buy some land. As he said, one Ferrari is worth as much as 100 acres in North Carolina.
The interview also raised serious judicial issues. The CEO of Epic Games talked about the war with Apple and Google. He pointed out that the monopoly on mobile devices must end, and anyone who does not support his efforts is likely to want to charge a 30% profit share themselves. The war is gaining momentum. Who will win it?
