Wccftech wrote:[UPDATE] Epic has issued the following statement in response to the original story,

Epic will reconsider pursuing its case against Apple in the U.K. after the resolution of the U.S. case. We note the Competition Appeal Tribunal's assessment that Apple and Google's anticompetitive app store policies are 'serious issues to be tried' under UK Competition law, and that it is 'well arguable' that their conduct has 'an immediate and substantial effect in the UK'. We are unwavering in our commitment to stopping Apple and Google's anti-competitive practices and will continue to fight for fairer app distribution globally.
It might have finally dawned on Epic that they are losing this one I'm afraid, and they have no grounds to fight antitrust in the UK either it seems.
Save their money for another day, and back away slowly with their tail between their legs.

Didn't I see Apple change their cut to 15% for smaller devs and Google change the rules on third party stores?

Even if they don't get everything they wanted, they already had a large impact.
Good ol USA, where you worry more about being killed by the police than anyone else...but that could happen too.

Apple and Google are doing that in order to avoid anti trust action by the US government, but it should happen anyway.

Probably, but I'm just doubting Epic went into this expecting to get every single thing they wanted.
