Fortnite removed from App Store after Epic Games added direct payment option

<div class="feat-image"></div>
<p><strong>Update</strong>: Epic Games filed legal papers attacking App Store policy.</p>
<p>The highly-popular battle royale game Fortnite has now been removed from the App Store, after the company added a direct payments feature that evaded Apple’s In-App Purchase system. Read Apple’s statement after the break.</p>
<p>App Store rules requires digital purchases to use In-App Purchase, sharing 30% commission with Apple. The direct payments feature was pretty clearly in violation of those rules. Many believe Epic went ahead with it as an intentional stunt to draw attention to Apple’s App Store policy, amidst growing anticompetitive pressures.</p>
