The company also objected to Apple’s view that its in-app purchases were essential to the App Store, noting that purchases for real products (such as Amazon and Uber) should not use the same system. He denied Apple’s claim that Epic “creates the current situation”, arguing that it was simply exercising its support for the Supreme Court to reject “anti-competitive terms”.
There is no guarantee that the court will see things on Epic and force Apple to recover Fortnite as long as there is a decision on the case. The player numbers not only change the story, but also give an idea of how well Fortnite handled iOS. Epic seems to have made its risky move despite the influx of gamers with iOS, not to cause a surge. Keep in mind that this also makes more gambling. The longer Fortnite staying away from the App Store, the greater the chance Epic will lose the earlier momentum and money that came with it.
