Epic Games has stated that because Apple is blocking it from releasing patches and fixes for its games on Apple products, it will be shutting down Fortnite: Save the World on Mac on 23rd September, 2020.
In the latest instalment of Apple and Epic’s regrettably public spat, Epic Games released a statement saying that because Apple won’t let it release games or patches, it’s no longer able to update the game.
“Apple is preventing Epic from signing games and patches for distribution on Mac, which ends our ability to develop and offer Fortnite: Save the World for the platform,” Epic said (thanks, The Verge). “Specifically, our upcoming v14.20 release will cause bugs for players on v13.40, resulting in a very poor experience. Since we are no longer able to sign updates and release fixes for these issues, beginning September 23, 2020, Fortnite: Save the World will no longer be playable on macOS.”
