The soap opera between Epic and Apple seems to be at a key point right now. From Epic Games the company’s own CEO Tim Sweeney, confirmed in his official Twitter account a few hours ago the payment of the 6 million dollars to Apple for damages decreed by the judge, in turn they indicated a few hours ago that they would appeal the sentence imposed by the high court.

Epic’s message is clear and they will not sit still before the sentence

We will see more news about this case for sure …
