Fortnite Gets Banned From Play Store, App Store: Here’s Why?


Fortnite one of the most played battle royale style games across the globe now has no place on two of the app market places in the smartphone ecosystem.

Fortnite Gets Banned From Play Store, App Store: Here’s Why?

Though Fortnite was available on the Apple App Store for the last few years, it was recently added to the Google Play Store. These app platforms control the payment aspect of an app or a game. As a platform provider, they do charge a certain percentage of the transaction (30 percent) as their fee.

Every game that is available on the Play Store and App Store are confined to these rules and Fortnite introduced its own payment feature that defies these rules. As these rules violate certain policies of these app platforms, Fortnite has been sacked from the stores.

This means iPhone and iPad users will not be able to play Fortnite, whereas Android users can continue to enjoy the game and they can directly download the same via the Epic Store. Even Google has confirmed that Android smartphone and tablet users will be able to play the game, considering the open-source policy of the Android platform.

As soon as the game went down, Epic Store the maker of Fortnite, is taking a legal route over this monopoly-like move. Similarly, Epic has also released a new video that is reminiscent of an Apple ad released in 1984 with #FreeFortnite hashtag.

Should You Stop Playing Fortnite?

If you are an Android smartphone/tablet user, then you can continue to play Fortnite without any worries. However, if you are an iOS user, then you might not be able to play the game and the title will no longer receive software updates, so it is best to uninstall the same.
