Apple and Google announced to remove Fortnite’s game from their stores. This doesn’t stop here and Epic is now suing both the companies over the step. The companies stated that the game has violated in-app payment guidelines.
What actually happened is, Apple and Google confirmed that a direct payment feature rolled out on the Fortnite app on August 13 as the violation. Epic used in-app payment systems that gave Google and Apple a large share of any funds generated from player purchases.
See Here what Apple and Google are saying:(Directly from sources)
Apple said “Today, Epic Games took the unfortunate step of violating the App Store guidelines that are applied equally to every developer and designed to keep the store safe for our users. As a result, their Fortnite app has been removed from the store. Epic enabled a feature in its app which was not reviewed or approved by Apple, and they did so with the express intent of violating the App Store guidelines regarding in-app payments that apply to every developer who sells digital goods or services.”
Whereas Google stated: “The open Android ecosystem lets developers distribute apps through multiple app stores. For game developers who choose to use the Play Store, we have consistent policies that are fair to developers and keep the store safe for users”.
