No longer just an allegation: Google offered Epic a $147 million deal to launch Fortnite on Play.

We just saw the receipts in court. In a proposal that Google’s VP of Play partnerships confirmed was approved by Google’s business council and actually offered to Epic Games, Google agreed to invest $147M in incremental funding over three years “in an X-PA effort to convince Epic to launch Fortnite on Play.”

In a document justifying the deal, Google wrote that “Fortnite’s absence could result in $130M (up to $250M) direct revenue loss with Play” and that there could be a “downstream impact of $550M (up to $3.6B) potential revenue loss if broad contagion to other developers.” But Epic said no.
