Epic Games Apple Developer Account Is Now Terminated

Apple said it was going to happen. And last night, it happened. Apple has terminated the developer account of Epic Games who tried to bypass Apple by offering up their own payment system so that they would make 30% more money. But the battle is far from over. Besides the court case, there’s the battle on Twitter. Apple gave a statement to several outlets including 9to5Mac.com, and Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney responded:

Sweeney’s response is really rich considering everything that has come out about what Epic wanted from Apple, and the fact that they were expecting to get punted and had marketing material ready to go. Frankly, Epic Games can take a flying leap as far as I am concerned. They’re really tried a power play and failed. Now Eric Sweeney and his employees need to either make nice and take the judges suggestion and make things right.
