Apple will let Epic Games users ‘sign in with Apple’ for a bit longer – Engadget

UPDATE: Apple previously stated they would terminate “Sign In with Apple” support for Epic Games accounts after Sept 11, 2020, but today provided an indefinite extension. We still recommend you prepare your accounts now for “Sign In with Apple” removal. https://t.co/hUDCKcajGo

Epic CEO Tim Sweeney has long railed against the 30 percent share that Valve, Google, Apple and other huge games distributors charge for participation in their storefronts, and he made a point to launch the Epic Games Store with an 88/12 split, in favor of developers.

Epic Games sued Apple over its 30 percent revenue split and the company’s monopoly-like control over the App Store on the iOS platform (it also sued Google for similar reasons on Android). Apple then removed Fortnite from the App Store, countersued Epic, and the companies have been battling legally and publicly ever since. As a billion-dollar company takes on a trillion-dollar one, indie developers and players can only watch. And appropriately update their sign-in options, of course.
