Exciting news for Fortnite fans! Fortnite will soon be playable again on iPhone and iPad devices in 2024. This development comes following a significant ruling from the European Commission against Apple’s content restriction policies.

European Commission’s Ruling

The European Commission has strongly opposed Apple’s content restriction policies, stating that iOS devices must allow the presence of third-party stores to comply with the Digital Markets Act. As a result, Fortnite is expected to make its return to iPad and iPhone platforms in the near future.

Epic Games Store Expansion

Earlier in 2024, Epic Games announced that the Epic Games Store would become available on iOS devices throughout the year, bringing back its flagship game, Fortnite. Epic has clarified that this law applies not only to iPhones but also to iPads, expanding the reach of their gaming ecosystem.

Anticipated Launch

While an exact date has not been announced, Epic is working diligently to make its store operational on iOS devices in Europe as soon as possible. This development will significantly expand the player community and enable cross-play across all platforms, including Nintendo Switch.

Legal Victory and Future Prospects

Recently, Epic Games reported that Apple had terminated its developer account citing reliability issues, which had hindered software publication within Apple’s ecosystem. However, with the new ruling from European courts in favor of Fortnite, exciting news is on the horizon for iPhone and iPad players.

Stay tuned for more updates as Epic Games prepares to reintroduce Fortnite to iOS, offering players new opportunities for cross-platform gaming and community engagement.
