Will Fortnite return to Apple iPhones and tablets this year? - Walla! The gaming channel


The CEO of Epic Games is confident that the dispute with Apple will end and that the Battle Royale game will return to the App Store

Fortnite (Epic Games)

Everyone remembers the legal incident of Afik against Apple in which Fortnite was removed from the technology giant's iPhones and tablets, and this in light of the conflict with the game developer over the payment of percentage fees.

Apple claimed that for every digital purchase made in Fortnite through its platform, Afik is obligated to pay it a 30% commission.

Afik claimed that it did not, demanding that Apple allow players ways to install the game and pay outside of its platforms, and this dragged the two into a huge legal dispute.

In the end, Apple removed Fortnite from its devices, but this year Apik CEO

Tim Sweeney

seems to believe that Fortnite will return to Apple in a big way. He posted on Twitter the phrase "next year on iOS" along with a picture from the game, which received more than a million and a half views And dozens of likes and comments.

So how is this supposed to happen?

Regulators in the European Union advanced a law last month that states that Apple must open up its systems and allow the installation of third-party applications.

That is, those that are not marketed through the App Store.

Sweeney seems to estimate that this year Apple will allow the installation of Fortnite on its devices, but nothing is final or officially confirmed.

Other sources believe that Apple will resist the move as much as possible, and it will try to withdraw these changes until 2024.
