You can still install Fortnite on Android, however, Epic is pointing users to its website instead.
Epic Games is launching an all-out campaign against Apple and its App Store rules.
What's the go with these payments?
As for the iOS users, those who have already downloaded Fortnite can still access the game, but new downloads are disabled.
After the fallout, Apple said that the Epic Games had taken an unfortunate step of violating the App Store guidelines, which include restrictions on any payment system apart from Apple's.
Apple and Google both take a 30 per cent cut from in-app revenue purchases in games, which has always been a sore spot with developers. The lawsuit also alleges Apple on managing what kind of apps can appear on the App Store and the 30 per cent cut on its own payment system, which is high.
"Apple is just blocking direct payments for certain products [like games] and companies [like Epic]", the developer said.
As some of you may know, OnePlus recently announced that you can play Fortnite in 90FPS on select OnePlus devices. You will then be prompted to install the latest Fortnite update when the app opens.
The title's removal from the App Store means that new players will not be able to download it and that existing players can not receive updates, but the game will continue to work on devices where it is already installed. As a result, Apple removed Fornite from the App Store and Epic started its anti-trust action. Apple is bigger, more powerful, more entrenched, and more pernicious than the monopolists of yesteryear.
It mocks Apple's famous "1984" ad - arguably the most famous and well-regarded commercial of all time - in which the company positioned itself as crusaders against conformity and the means of achieving freedom.
"Epic has had apps on the App Store for a decade, and have benefited from the App Store ecosystem - including it's tools, testing, and distribution that Apple provides to all developers".
And, well, watch for yourself.
"Today, we celebrate the anniversary of the platform unification directives", an apple, doing the job of Big Brother in the original video, says in the ad. Epic Games isn't fighting for a principle; it is fighting for money.
How many people does this affect?The game had more than 350 million registered players as of May. The figures for the Play store are that the game earned $3 million in the last 30 days, with Google standing to lose $1 million per month.
"In the parody, which quickly garnered hundreds of thousands of views, a female Fortnite fighter hurls a unicorn-shaped club to smash a screen on which an Apple-headed character speaks of 'the anniversary of the platform unification directives, '" they write.
We don't know how this will end just yet.
