Sadly for Epic, evidently Apple isn’t too eager on that concept. In a press release made to AppleInsider, the corporate mentioned, “As we’ve mentioned all alongside, we’d welcome Epic’s return to the App Retailer if they comply with play by the identical guidelines as everybody else. Epic has admitted to breach of contract and as of now, there’s no authentic foundation for the reinstatement of their developer account.”
Be aware that Apple isn’t saying no eternally. As per the assertion, Apple appears to be greater than keen to let Fortnite again into the App Retailer in the event that they’re keen to play by the principles. The primary cause why Fortnite was eliminated was as a result of Epic had violated Apple’s phrases of service by overtly promoting an alternate manner for players to pay for in-app purchases.
This kicked off a lawsuit towards Apple over the App Retailer’s commissions, which additionally led to governments around the globe wanting into Apple’s practices as effectively. We will solely think about that Epic assumed that the South Korean ruling meant that Fortnite is now secure once more, at the least so far as the Korean market is anxious, however evidently Apple doesn’t agree.
Proper now it’s unclear how Apple will likely be dealing with third-party funds in Korea. Whereas the laws has been handed, it has but to come back into impact, so we’ll simply have to attend and see.
