As Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 is about to arrive, iOS users will not be able to enjoy it. As expected, the conflict between Apple and Epic Games will deprive iOS players of updates for an indefinite period. The next season of Fortnite, centered around the Marvel universe, will therefore pass under the noses of these players. But is it the only one who will be in this case?
Apple vs. Epic, the impact for Fortnite on iOS
Totally banned from the AppStore, it is now impossible for anyone to download Fortnite on a device with iOS. However, those who had the game at its latest version before it was removed can still enjoy it. But it will be impossible for players to download data for a future update. So from season 4 of Fortnite Chapter 2, iOS and MacOS will no longer allow you to enjoy the most recent version of the game.
This is also a problem that is likely to last a long time, neither of the two companies being ready to give in. The next legal intervention between the two parties is due to take place in September. At that time we will be able to learn more about the future of Fortnite on Apple's media. But it's an uncertain future given the arguments made by Apple against Epic Games. And it's not the crowd movement caused by the #FreeFortnite that makes the apple tremble.
There's no guarantee that Fortnite will be back on iOS or macOS this year. It is even quite unlikely that this is the case. But this controversy created by Epic Games will have serious repercussions on the flagship game.
