Another twist has come into the war story between Epic Games and Apple App Store. After being ordered by the district court not to remove the developer account, Epic saw it as a partial victory, but the court continued to support Apple over the removal of Fortnite until Epic Games did not follow App Store norms. Now in a major step, Apple has terminated the account of Epic Games from the App Store. The Apple team said to Techcrunch that “We are disappointed that we have had to terminate the Epic Games account on the App Store. We have worked with the team at Epic Games for many years on their launches and releases“”.
Although Epic has been on the App Store for a very long time, the App store did mention that the game developers were constantly adding updates to the game, which violated the rules of the App Store. After the Epic Games account was removed from the App Store, the next big question was about the apps that used the Unreal Engine, and one such highlighted application was PUBG.
On the other hand, Apple has blamed the Epic Games of diverting customers to Apple Care, especially those who are frustrated due to the Epic games ban. The next big thing in the fight would be about popular apps like PUBG, which is one of the most popular game apps on the App Store and uses Unreal Engine in its game. It seems like the fight between the two will bring a lot of new things for the users.
