There is a war currently between the company, Epic Games the developer of the famous game free and Apple, after the recent removal of the game Battle Royale on the store its own application where indicated to Apple that the company Epic Games violated the policy at their applications, however, the story didn’t stop there!
The company Epic Games the developer of the famous game Fortnite add a new payment method inside the game intended for iPhone, in order that the players are able to pay away from the Apple Store and then not adhere to the fees imposed by Apple on every purchase made within stores in which up to 30%.
Immediately, came the reply Apple decisively violent, where the police removed the game free on the App Store own by this resolution represents a major escalation in the dispute between my company Epic and the size of the App Store, which dominates a large proportion of mobile devices in the world.
It also comes the reply from Apple at a difficult time for him, where the company is subject to U.S. currently sift through its anticompetitive behavior, especially in relation to the app store of its own.
Revealed the company’s Epic series of responses calculated carefully, after the ban game free from the Apple application store, and began their replies filed a lawsuit against Apple and the company provided the developer of the game free file of 65 pages with references to the laws and policies of the Apple Store that you remember through it all and also the competition and the developers to pay a royalty for each purchase made inside her store.
After that, taken it a dramatic turn when it was published by Epic video made fun of Apple where they were using the Apple ad which was published in 1984 to promote Macs and Apple has pointed out in advertising that the device will eliminate the monopoly of IBM, for it seems that things are flipped on the company iPhone as demonstrated by the company Epic it is a symbol of Monopoly and eliminating competition, and then demanded that the developer of the game lovers free support through her battle flaming with Apple.
We mentioned in a previous article, that Apple you convert 30% of each purchase to occur within its own application store, it seems that the company Epic were tired of the car monopoly and royalties imposed by Apple and even Google on the App Store and wanted to go beyond all constraints and the community of players against Apple by showing that they impose lower rates pay its own new compared to the price of the largest when you are obliged to pay 30% of every financial transaction and launched the hashtag FreeFortnite# to collect as much of the players and get their support in the face of Apple.
The way Epic designed to provoke Apple however has agreed to the developer of the game free freely on the policies of the Apple Store and, of course, benefited from the access for users of the iPhone, and achieve huge profit and for this privilege you see Apple they can get additional charges, from my perspective, I see that the game developer Forest wants to get laid its own and not pay a fee to Apple but the American company won’t give Epic what they want and will insist on its position preventing the game from being fun until you meet the company’s developer policies for the App Store.
Do you agree with what the Company developer of the game free and you actually see that Apple is using royalty imposed by the inside of her shop, we shared what you think in the comments
