Epic Games Loot Boxes
Class Action

This class action alleges that loot boxes in video games constitute unlicensed gambling and seeks to obtain compensation for individuals who have purchased loot boxes in Epic Games’ titles Fortnite: Save The World and Rocket League.

A loot box is a game of chance inside a video game in which a player pays for a digital “roll of the dice” chance to obtain a randomized selection of virtual items, ranging from simple customization options for a player’s avatar or character, to game-changing equipment or additional avatars/characters which can enhance a player’s ability to beat others.

A SETTLEMENT HAS BEEN REACHED IN THE ACTION AGAINST EPIC GAMES INC. AND EPIC GAMES ULC (“EPIC GAMES”) 

A settlement has been reached to resolve the Quebec Action (S.C.Q. 500-06-001132-212) and the B.C. Action (S.C.B.C. S-220088) against Epic Games Inc. for Canadian players of Fornite: Save the World and Rocket League. Please see the documents tab for materials that may affect your legal rights. This settlement has not yet been approved by the Courts. 

Under the Settlement, all Canadian players of Fortnite: Save the World and Rocket League, or their guardians or estates, who bought a random item loot box in either game before Epic Games discontinued random loot boxes are entitled to receive certain benefits. The proposed Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Epic Games, and it denies that it violated the law. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Rather, to avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of litigation, the Parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit.
