Apple reneges on Epic Games

Epic Games CEO - Fortnite remains blacklisted

Epic Games gets reneged by Apple regarding Fortnite

The legal battle between Epic and Apple came to a head on September 10, with the conclusion Apple was within its rights to eliminate any Epic-related accounts it choose from the App Store. However the legal appeal continues on.

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has revealed in a series of tweets, Apple had falsely promised to Epic Games they would “welcome Epic’s return to play by the same rules as everyone else.” He then wrote “Epic agreed, and now Apple has reneged in another abuse of its monopoly power over a billion users”.

Sweeney revealed Apple had blacklisted ‘Fortnite from the Apple ecosystem until the exhaustion of all court appeals, which could be as long a 5-year process’.

Apple has not commented on Sweeney’s tweets.
