Fortnite was removed from the App Store and Google App Store nearly two years ago, though many who have not deleted the Fortnite App are still able to play the game with others running the same version as theirs.
Fortnite earlier had warned its players on iOS, Mac and Android to use the latest bundle available by the end of this month. After this the app will be removed from the app stores and players will no longer be able to spend V-Bucks and also require to be over 18 to play.
While the new terms and conditions limit even more playability, users can still enjoy the game with these limitations. V-Bucks are used in the game to purchase season passes, skins, and other items.
Fortnite in a tweet said, “Beginning January 30, Fortnite players using the August 2020 13.40 app build previously available on iOS, Mac, and Google Play can no longer spend V-Bucks and must be over 18 to play. We want all versions of our games to use the current suite of Epic Online Services including parental controls, purchasing defaults, and parental verification features. We are not able to update the app on these platforms given Apple and Google’s restrictions on Fortnite.”

Before the end of 2022, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney tweeted, the battle-royale game was returning to the Apple ecosystem in 2023. A new law in Europe could be the reason Sweeney is hinting at a comeback, while Apple and Epic are still in court over App Store practices in the US.
Under the new European Digital Markets Act, Apple will have to allow third-party apps and app stores to use its ecosystem. The company also plans to open more APIs to third-party apps, remove the requirement that third-party web browsers use WebKit, and potentially allow users to install third-party payment systems.
It is still unclear how Apple will make these changes, as it is getting iOS 17 prepared to comply with these rules, not only in Europe, but other countries, including the United States, would have to pass similar laws forcing Apple’s hand.
