Fortnite developer pays record amount of fines and refunds to players

Games publisher Epic Games has filed a dispute with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over paying $520M / $428.4M in fines.

Epic Games, developers of Online Battle Royale Fourteen days, will pay a $275m / £225.8m / AU$411.9m fine for violating COPPA practices and a further $245m / 201.3m £/AU$366.9m to be distributed as refunds. This is the “highest penalty ever imposed for violating an FTC rule,” according to the US regulator official statement (opens in new tab). In addition to the fines, the FTC requires Epic Games to “adopt strong privacy defaults for children and young people and ensure that voice and text communications are disabled by default.”
