Epic Games Gives The Middle Finger To Apple By Refusing To Make Any Changes To Fortnite

Fresh off of losing in court to Apple earlier this week, Epic Games was given the choice by the judge overseeing the case to fix this situation by pulling out the ability to bypass Apple’s in app payment system. But it now looks like that’s not going to happen and Epic Games is giving the middle finger to the Apple ecosystem.

In an update to a “Fortnite” FAQ today, Epic Games said that the season update would not be available on iPhone, iPad or Mac on the Aug. 27 date. Oddly, they aren’t doing the same thing to Google which Epic is also suing. So in short, it seems that Apple users of all sorts are being abandoned by Epic Games. In effect, they are giving Apple and their user base the middle finger.

Up until this point, I have tried not to take sides in this as neither side is blameless here. But Epic Games has really screwed this up. They really tried to do a power play here from all the available evidence. And because they didn’t get their way, they’re picking up their marbles and going home. Thus I for one would say that Epic shouldn’t let the door hit them on the way out. You’re not going to be missed on the Apple platform.
