The court battle between Apple and Epic continues to heat up, and now Epic CEO Tim Sweeney says that Apple won’t let Fortnite back on the App Store until the case is finished going through the court process.
Sweeney took to Twitter to voice his displeasure that Apple won’t allow the Epic apps to return to the App Store, even though the company has agreed to play by Apple’s payment rules.
Apple lied. Apple spent a year telling the world, the court, and the press they’d “welcome Epic’s return to the App Store if they agree to play by the same rules as everyone else”. Epic agreed, and now Apple has reneged in another abuse of its monopoly power over a billion users.
