Who among us did not allow the war between Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, and the two giants Google and Apple? In short, it revolves around the refusal of Epic Games to pay a percentage of its sales to Google and Apple, despite their ownership of the stores! Of course, the matter includes many details, but perhaps the question that came to your mind: How can I download the Fortnite game for Android after removing it from the Play Store? Today we answer you.
Summary of the situation between Google, Apple and Epic Games developed for Fortnite
Apple and Google impose up to 30% of any amount that is collected from any application on their store, meaning if you paid $ 10 in the Fortnite game, they would reach $ 7 for the developer and $ 3 for Google, and this is something Epic Games hated strongly, which was the reason In not putting Fortite on the Play Store until recently.
What Epic Games did and the reason for the problem is that it added an option to pay directly within Fortnite without using Google or Apple to complete the payment – that is, via credit card – this on the one hand, on the other hand it provided a discount of up to 20% who did not choose to pay directly!
Apple learned about the matter and then contacted Epic Games telling her that this was not acceptable and they had to remove this direct payment option. Later, Epic rejected Apple's request, which ultimately led to the removal of Fortnite from the Apple store! The next day it was also removed from the Google Play Store, for the same reasons.
