No more Fortnite on Apple: Epic Games’ developer account banned

After a lot of warning, Apple has kicked Fortnite off the App Store and has also banned Epic’s Apple developer account. This essentially means that iPhones and iPad will no longer get any updates for Fortnite.

For some context, Apple and Epic Games have been fighting over both money and power. Apple takes a commission of about 30% from digital items that are bought from its own platform. Epic games recently created a way to directly pay for everything without paying Apple any commission.

Apple responded by removing the game from its App Store. To this, Epic games retaliated with a lawsuit and a campaign against Apple. They also made a video mocking Apple’s Macintosh 1984 ad.

This matter was at a California judge who declined to intervene, as Apple said it would take back everything if Fornite removed the latest flaw-exploiting update.

“The court recommended that Epic complies with the App Store guidelines while their case moves forward, guidelines they’ve followed for the past decade until they created this situation. Epic has refused,” Apple said, adding that Epic “repeatedly” submitted updates that still violated its guidelines. “We hope that we can work together again in the future, but unfortunately that is not possible today.”

For the benefit of every Fortnite player on iPhone and iPad, we wish that this matter gets resolved quickly.
