Google Is Irresponsible 👀 Claims Fortnite's Chief in Bug Row❗

  |   Tech News

The leader of the firm behind the hit game Fortnite has accused Google of being "irresponsible" in the way it revealed a flaw affecting the Android version of the title.

On Friday, Google made public that hackers could hijack the game's installation software to load malware.

The installer is needed because Epic Games has bypassed Google's app store to avoid giving it a cut of sales.

Epic's chief executive said Google should have delayed sharing the news.

"We asked Google to hold the disclosure until the update was more widely installed," tweeted Tim Sweeney.

A spokesman for Google declined to comment.
