Epic Games have fallen out with Apple, and then shortly after Google too. After allowing users to buy cheaper V-bucks that bypass Apple and Google’s service fees on their stores, both Apple and Google removed Fortnite from their marketplaces, sending a clear message: if we can’t have some of the money, nobody gets anything.
Or at least, that’s the narrative that Epic is putting in place. Epic is making Apple especially out to be this evil megacorporation which is taking games away from you if you don’t give them money. In reality, license and transaction fees on marketplaces for digital goods are standard across every marketplace – Epic is just mad because they can’t make an alternative iOS store the way they can on PC and Android.
So they have put on an incredibly performative show, complete with pre-prepared takedown trailers and legal action which frame Epic as a small, humble company under the boot of a tech giant. In reality, it’s the worst adaptation of Clash of the Titans yet. But this clash of corporate might has only one victim: the end-users, you, the gamers. So the question is, what is the next step, and what does this mean for you?
Well, we’re going to take a quick look at both the short term and long term effects this will have on Fortnite and Epic Games, but regardless, you have no reason to fear that your favourite game is going to go away forever. That simply will not happen. Though you might be waiting a while before you can play it on iOS devices again…
