Google blocked LG and OnePlus deals, Epic Games claims
OnePlus and Epic Games recently reached a deal, according to the lawsuit, that would see the latter develop an improved version of Fortnite with a higher refresh rate in exchange for OnePlus pre-installing the Epic Games app on its smartphones.
The plan was to pre-install the Epic Games store on OnePlus smartphones worldwide, but Google swiftly stepped in and blocked the agreement. For unknown reasons, though, Google made an exception for the Indian market.
According to OnePlus, Google was “particularly concerned that the Epic Games app would have the ability to potentially install and updated multiple games with a silent install bypassing the Google Play Store.”
