Apple is no longer playing around with Epic Games. As promised, the company has terminated the Fornite maker’s primary developer account, which means that Epic’s apps are no longer available on the iOS App Store (MacRumors and 9to5Mac are reporting that searching for Epic Games turns up nothing).
We previously learned that Epic had won a partial restraining order against Apple, but apparently, that only involved the Epic International account, which is used by third-party app developers for Unreal Engine. That decision did not prevent Apple from wiping Epic’s apps from iOS.
Interestingly, Apple is currently promoting PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – one of Fornite’s biggest competitors – on the home screen of the App Store. Talk about rubbing it in.
Very cheeky: Apple is now promoting PUBG Mobile on the App Store front page 🙃 pic.twitter.com/4upW01PHW5— Renaud.lienhart(_:) throws (@layoutSubviews) August 28, 2020
