Home ” The return of Fortnite on iOS, not before next spring … at best

IOS gamers aren’t ready to see Fortnite on iPhone or iPad again. The American justice has indeed refused to force Apple to reinstate the game of Epic Games in the App Store.

In the bitter legal battle between Apple and Epic since this summer, the publisher of Fortnite has lost a legal battle. He had indeed asked the Californian justice for an injunction that would have allowed his game to return to the App Store, from which it has been absent since the end of August. This removal is costing Epic dearly, with iOS gamers spending a lot of money on skins and the battle pass.

Justice with Apple

Unfortunately for Epic, justice sided with Apple, which will therefore not have to take Fortnite back to the App Store. When the publisher decided to integrate a second payment system for V-Bucks in the heart of the summer, he immediately caught the wrath of the iPhone manufacturer. The latter is indeed very straddling in-app purchases in iOS applications: users are required to use Apple’s payment system, which provides him with a 30% commission.

As soon as Epic offered players to register their credit card directly in Fortnite, it opened Pandora’s Box: Apple not only removed the game from its store but also revoked the company’s developer account, preventing it from being released. ” bring updates and simply develop Fortnite. Worse, players who have already downloaded the game can no longer recover it in the event of a change of device or restore of iOS!

Epic will now have to wait for the trial to be held in May 2021 to try to win the case. And depending on the jury’s conclusions, Apple will restore Fortnite to the App Store… or not! IOS players are therefore condemned to wait until next spring to find their battle royale preferred, unless the appeal process further extends Fortnite’s restoration on Apple’s mobile platform. The players may have moved on!
