Fortnite creator Epic Games has agreed to pay record amounts in two settlements with the Federal Trade Commission. Epic will fork over $275 million for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and is on the hook for $245 million to refund customers for its billing practices. “No developer creates a game with the intention of ending up here,” said Epic. “The video game industry is a place of fast-moving innovation, where player expectations are high and new ideas are paramount. Statutes written decades ago don’t specify how gaming ecosystems should operate. The laws have not changed, but their application has evolved and long-standing industry practices are no longer enough. We accepted this agreement because we want Epic to be at the forefront of consumer protection and provide the best experience for our players.”
