The conflict between Epic Games and Apple has not ended, as the trial between both companies will take place until next year. Due to this, iOS device users have not been able to play or enjoy the latest Fortnite news.
In case you don’t remember, the game was removed from the App Store shortly after Epic Games tried to skip fees from the Apple store. This generated a legal fight that affected an important part of the Battle Royale community.
A recent report indicates that Fortnite could return to iOS devices very soon. This would not be possible thanks to an agreement between the companies involved, since players could enjoy the Battle Royale through Nvidia GeForce Now, a streaming service.
PLAYERS COULD RETURN TO FORTNITE ON IOS THANKS TO GEFORCE NOW
According to information from the BBC, Nvidia is working on a version of GeForce Now that will run through the Safari browser on its mobile version. In this way, players would have an alternative to returning to the Battle Royale from their iOS devices.
On the other hand, it is noted that Apple would not be able to make a profit from the items sold in the Battle Royale if the game is run through the Nvidia service. Nor would it be a long-term problem, as Apple does not restrict third-party services that run through your browser.
The possible return of the game to iOS is certainly good news; however, Nvidia GeForce Now is not necessarily a viable alternative for all gamers, as it is a cloud gaming service.
The reality is that neither Epic Games nor Nvidia have commented anything about it. Part of the community has doubts about this possibility, especially since the legal conflict with Apple continues.
On the other hand, it should be remembered that Epic and Nvidia have collaborated on various occasions on projects related to the Battle Royale. In addition, Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, believes that cloud services are necessary to end certain monopolies.
In fact, Fortnite already has support for GeForce Now. Epic Games made it clear that it will support the streaming service and collaborate with Nvidia on various related projects.
