Mobile Fortnite players will be able to sign in to Epic’s PC storefront and find Fortnite on the iOS version of Ge Force NOW. While not exactly as seamless as playing Fortnite was when it was available from the App Store, at least those who have only played the game on iOS will have that opportunity once again.
Documents filed in the court battle between Epic and Apple state that there were 116 million Fortnite players who played on iOS and 73 million played the game only on iOS. The number of Daily Active Users on iOS was 2.5 million or 10% of the 25 million who played every day across all platforms. And more in-app purchases were made on iOS than on Android.
Despite this scintillating news that mobile Safari will allow Fortnite to take a backdoor into the iOS platform, users no doubt would prefer that Apple and Epic kiss and make up so that the iOS Fortnite app can return.
