Apple and Google had no choice but to ban the Fortnite app from their app stores due to the new payment method for their users.
Fortnite is one of the most popular applications in the App stores, however, it did not prevent Epic Games, owner of Fortnite, to show the middle finger in an unusual “normal” style.
Fortnite implements new payment method
It all started because Fortnite decided to provide users with a new form of payment. Since Apple and Google take 30% of in-app purchases, Epic Games decided to create a new form of payment.
As we talked about yesterday, Epic gave the possibility, in an update, to users to pay directly for their purchases directly to the company.
That is, passing the payment format through App stores. Something that is not allowed by either Google or Apple. Therefore, the result was as expected. Google and Apple decided to ban the app from their app stores due to this new payment format.
We don’t know what the future will tell us about this situation. We only know that Epic Games is not happy with the 30% it gives Google and Apple. For their part, we also know that the tech giants are not happy with the latest decision by the world’s most popular game company. To the point of banishing it.
Therefore, the only way to install Fortnite on Android is by APK. On iOS, it’s not that simple. We will see to what extent Epic Games is helping to root the situation.
