In a new controversy involving the Fortnite, the online video game, and Google, the Fortnite chief has claimed the Google Chief as an irresponsible person. The differences between the two erupted when a bug was detected by the Google that can let the hackers to hijack the Fortnite's installation software to load malware.

The glitch could pose a direct threat to all the Android users' devices and could have even compromised the users’ data as well. Before the Epic Game’s developers could have come up with the security patch, the Google made it public.

Epic's chief executive, Tim Sweeney clearly indicated that his team had requested the Google to hold on the disclosure about the bug, but the tech giant didn’t comply with the same. 

One of the Sweeney’s Tweet read, “We asked Google to hold the disclosure until the update was more widely installed. They refused, creating an unnecessary risk for Android users in order to score cheap PR points.”

The expected reason for the mess could be related to the Epic Games denial to share Google’s 30 percent cut by putting the Fortnite on the Google Play Store. The company considered the move because the entire game is funded through in-app purchases.

“Epic wants to have a direct relationship with our customers on all platforms where that’s possible,” Sweeney communicated with ‘The Verge’ over email. “The great thing about the Internet and the digital revolution is that this is possible, now that physical storefronts and middlemen distributors are no longer required.”

On its release on the iOS platform, the Fornite was able to garner $15 million in the first three weeks. So, it makes sense when the company is looking into the financial aspect of the mobile version of the Fortnite.

Interestingly, Epic Games had to make a consent with the Apple for bringing Fortnite for the iPhone users because of the Apple's privacy policies that restrict the users from adding software from elsewhere.

In the past also, Google was criticised by the Microsoft for publicizing the some of the Windows vulnerabilities before it could be fixed. The other such incident with the Apple and Samsung too.
