Epic Games vs. Apple (Nineteen Eighty-Fortnite Animated Short) #FreeFortnite

Epic vs Apple

Epic Games are suing Apple for their App Store practices and have released a video that parodies Apple’s 1984 ad.

From Epic:

“Apple has blocked access to Fortnite on iOS devices. Epic has taken legal action to end Apple’s anti-competitive restrictions on mobile device marketplaces. The papers are available to read in full here.

“Rather than tolerate this healthy competition and compete on the merits of its offering, Apple responded by removing Fortnite from sale on the App Store, which means that new users cannot download the app, and users who have already downloaded prior versions of the app from the App Store cannot update it to the latest version. This also means that Fortnite players who downloaded their app from the App Store will not receive updates to Fortnite through the App Store, either automatically or by searching the App Store for the update. Apple’s removal of Fortnite is yet another example of Apple flexing its enormous power in order to impose unreasonable restraints and unlawfully maintain its 100% monopoly over the iOS In-App Payment Processing Market.”

This follows Epic decreasing the price of V-Bucks earlier today, as well as offering players on iOS the option to pay Epic directly rather than giving them their 30% cut. Shortly after this, Apple removed Fortnite from the App Store and here we are.

2020. A year, it has been.
