Fortnite FTC Claim Extension

If you were one of the 37 million Fortnite players notified by the FTC that you might be eligible for compensation from Epic Games as a result of practices intended to deceive players into making “unwanted” purchases and you haven’t submitted a claim, there is still time.

Today, the Federal Trade Commission extended the deadline to make a claim until February 29. During this time, players or, in some cases, their parents or guardians can file a claim via the FTC site.

For those who may have forgotten, Epic Games already agreed to pay $245 million to the FTC, which the agency will use to pay player claims.

If you haven’t filed a claim because you thought you might have to come up with paperwork, don’t worry about it. The form doesn’t require receipts or documents at the moment. The claim will also have no impact on the Fortnite account in question.
