Apple closed the developer account of Fortnite and introduced PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
According to 9to5mac, while Epic Games and Apple are still in a legal battle over the App Store’s in-app payment, the competitors of Fortnite are getting some benefits from the App Store: Additional publicity. Foreign media said that when users open the App Store today, they will see an App Store article promoting “PUBG Mobile”.
It is worth noting that the “PUBG Mobile” App Store featured stories were released on the same day that Apple terminated the Epic Games developer account associated with “Fortnite”. IT House learned that “PUBG Mobile” was created by Epic’s Unreal Engine , so the whole thing is ironic.
Epic revealed last week that Apple had stated that it would terminate Fortnite’s developer account on August 28. According to the latest news, Apple has indeed taken action and it has terminated the Epic Games developer account.
Apple said that if Epic removes the direct payment feature that bypasses Apple’s in-app purchase system, it will be happy to welcome “Fortress Night” back to the App Store. But Epic did not make concessions.
