Fortnite accused of not having sufficiently protected minors Epic Games

Over half a billion dollars. This is the amount that the American video game publisher Epic Games will have to pay as part of an agreement with the American Consumer Protection Agency (FTC). The latter accused him of not having sufficiently protected underage players of his star game, Fortnite.

Part of the sum, or $ 275 million, relates to grievances relating to the collection of data concerning underage players as well as their exposure to adults. The rest, or 245 million, relates to purchases made in the game by participants under the legal age, who were not aware of making a payment. Two financial sanctions assumed by the publisher: “We agreed to this agreement because we want Epic to be at the forefront of consumer protection and provide the best experience for our players.”
