Fortnite returns to iOS but not to the App Store. With Nvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service, users of iOS and Android mobile devices will be able to play Fortnite via cloud gaming.
Fortnite has not been available on iOS devices since August 2020, when it was kicked from the App Store for Epic Games’ attempt to bypass 30 percent. commission on in-app purchases owned by Apple.
The developer then sued the Cupertino giant, claiming that the company was a monopoly violating antitrust laws. In September, a California court ruled that Apple could not prohibit game developers from adding links to alternative payments outside of the App Store.
Apple ultimately had an advantage in the ruling anyway. The court found that the technology company – contrary to Epic’s claims – was not operating as a monopoly.
Epic vs. Apple – there is a verdict. Apple’s dominance will be limited
