Fortnite was removed from the iOS device stores in August 2020, due to the endless dispute between Apple y Epic Games. More than a year later, in which we have witnessed trials, cross statements and other controversies between both companies, those responsible for the popular battle royale have confirmed that your intention is to re-launch it so that players who enjoy iPhone or iPad can access it again, taking advantage of the new law of South Korea that requires companies to allow others to use their own payment gateway.
Fortnite is found available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android devices. If both companies finally come to understand each other, it will also be available again on iOS devices (Iphone & Ipad).
The seventh and intense season of the fashionable battle royale is about to end: Sunday 12 at 22:00 (Spanish peninsular time) the event Operación: Cielo en Llamas will take place. Of course, we invite you to live it with us; we will play and comment live on everything that happens. And when something ends, something begins; Season 8 will premiere just hours later: Monday, September 13. As usual, at MeriStation we will cover all the news so you don’t miss a single detail.
South Korea in late August passed a bill that bans Apple from requiring developers to use its in-app purchase system. The bill forces Apple (and Google) to let developers use third-party payment methods to make purchases.
Epic Games now says that it intends to release Fornite in Korea and offer both Epic payment and Apple payment options side-by-side “in compliance with the new Korean law.”
