Fortnite may finally return to iOS this year teases Epic Gamee
The legal disputes between Apple and Epic Games might be over as the latter suggests that Fortnite is coming back to iOS devices in 2023.
Even though the legal battle between Epic Games and Apple came to an end in September 2021, it’s been unclear when, if ever, Fortnite would become available on Apple’s App Store again.
In the wake of the lawsuit, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said it would only happen ‘when and where Epic can offer in-app payment in fair competition with Apple in-app payment.’
Now, though, Sweeney has insinuated that 2023 is the year when Fortnite will return to Apple’s storefront.
In a succinct tweet from New Year’s Eve, Sweeney simply wrote, ‘Next year on iOS!’
Come New Year’s Day, he followed it up with an in-game screenshot from Fortnite of the game’s 2023 fireworks show celebrating the new year.
Although this begs the question of what became of the appeal Epic filed against the result of the lawsuit. Court hearings began this past November, according to TechCrunch, but there have been no substantial updates since.
Furthermore, Fortnite was banned from the Google Play store for the exact same reasons, prompting Epic to file a lawsuit against Google. That legal battle has yet to be resolved.
Fortnite is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
