Unfortunately for Epic, it seems Apple doesn’t really want this idea. In a statement to AppleInsider, the company said: “As mentioned earlier, we would welcome Epic’s return to the App Store if he agrees to abide by the same rules as all the others.
Note that Apple is not saying forever. In light of the allegations, Apple appears to be keen on Fortnite’s return to the App Store if it wants to comply with the rules. The main reason Fortnite was removed was that Epic violated Apple’s rules by publicly announcing another way for gamers to pay for in-app purchases.
This sparked a lawsuit against Apple on the App Store commissioners, which also prompted governments around the world to reconsider Apple’s actions. We can only assume that Epic thinks the ruling in South Korea means that Fortnite is now safe, especially in the Korean market, but it seems that Apple does not agree.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Although this order was issued, it did not work, so let’s just wait and see.
