CARY – Epic Games says it plans to call its majority owner, founder and CEO Tim Sweeney to the stand Thursday in the ongoing antitrust suit against global tech giant Google.
So far in the trial – now nearly two weeks old – Sweeney has been quiet about unfolding events on his “X” (formerly Twitter) account. “Epic v Google antitrust trial begins Monday morning. See y’all on the other side!” he wrote on Nov. 5.
Ahead of the showdown in federal court, Sweeney said Google was trying to “kneecap” competition with its game store restrictions which Epic is fighting.
He follows Google CEO Sundar Pichai who faced what The Associated Press described as “confrontational questioning” from Epic’s attorneys on Tuesday.
