Fortnite to be Back on iOS
Fortnite was banned from the Apple App Store almost two years back. The ban is due to the change that Epic Games made in the payment terms. The change made it possible for the users to bypass the Apple in-app purchase, and thus Apple lost the revenue it earned from users purchasing the applications. The ban existed until now, but if rumors are to be believed, the popular game may make a comeback this year, the Apple Devices.
The news went viral after the CEO of Epic Games, Tim Sweeney, tweeted about the same. It is also rumored that Apple will allow alternative App Stores on iOS Devices. In such a case, it may be possible that Fortnite will come back via alternative app stores. There is also a possibility that Epic Games is already in talks with Apple to remove the ban on Fortnite.

It should be noted that soon after the ban on Fortnite, Epic Games sued Apple. The case leads to Apple banning the developer account of Epic Games.
