Apple reinstates Epic Games developer account


:Apple has reinstated Epic Games’ developer account, game maker Fortnite announced Friday, two days after blocking the company from launching its own online marketplace on iPhone and iPad in Europe.

The game developer said it will continue with plans to bring the Epic Games Store and Fortnite game back to iOS to the continent.

“This sends a strong signal to developers that the European Commission will act quickly to enforce the law on digital markets and hold controllers to account,” Epic Games added.

The two companies have been engaged in a legal battle since 2020, when the gaming company alleged that Apple’s practice of charging up to 30% commissions on in-app payments on its iOS devices violated US antitrust rules.

“Following conversations with Epic, they have committed to following the rules, including our DMA policies. As a result, Epic Sweden AB has been allowed to re-sign the development agreement and accepted into the Apple Developer Program” , Apple said in a statement. .
