Case of the Year – Court supports Apple in ruling to remove Fortnite from the App Store

In the initial hearing in the case raised between Apple and Epic Games, the developer of the Fortnite game , Judge Yvonne Rodriguez said that the court tends to support Apple's decision to remove the game from the App Store.

The judge added that the current situation was created by Epic Games itself by violating the laws and rules of the store by adding an alternative payment method to the one provided by Apple.

The judge indicated that the problem between Apple and Epic Games can be solved by returning to what it was before the third day of August, that is, removing the alternative payment method provided by Epic Games in the Fort Knight game and only choosing the option to pay through Apple.

This was during the hearing and that was the opinion of the judge assigned to the case, and it is not considered a final judgment, but rather gives us an impression of the course of the case and where the events will go.

The judge also said that Apple has no right to remove the developer account of Epic Games, as it is responsible for developing the Unreal Engine package on which many applications and games depend. This was also Microsoft's opinion in its official letter to the court .

The judge held that there is no connection between Epic Games' violation of the store's rules and removing the Fortnite game on the one hand, and removing the company's developer account on the other hand, and that both are different.

For that, the court will issue a temporary decision prohibiting Apple from deleting the developer account for Epic Games, while Fortnite will not return to the App Store again at the present time.

The case sessions will be completed later in September if the parties do not reach any solutions or settlements outside the courtroom, which is unlikely.
