Apple's fight with Epic Games is apparently dragging other video game companies into its net.A joint court letter filed on Thursday and spotted by Ars Technica reveals Apple has been trying to subpoena Valve, the company behind the hugely popular online game store Steam, for information.Apple has been engaged in a legal battle with Epic Games, the studio behind the wildly popular "Fortnite," since August. The fight centers around Epic Games' refusal to comply with Apple's App Store rules on in-app payments in its iOS version of "Fortnite." Apple requires app developers to use its own payment system, which levies an automatic 30% tax on in-app purchases. Epic Games claims this is anti-competitive, and in August decided to implement its own payment system, after which Apple kicked "Fortnite" off the App Store.
