The court suggested that Epic consent to the App Store rules while their case pushes ahead, rules they’ve followed for as long as decade until they made this circumstance. Epic has won’t. Rather they consistently submit Fortnite refreshes intended to disregard the rules of the App Store. This isn’t reasonable for all different designers on the App Store and is placing clients in their battle. We trust that we can cooperate again later on, however lamentably that is absurd today.”
