If you haven’t been able to play Fortnite on your iPhone mobile before, don’t worry, Fortnite is going back to iPhones in October 2021. In an ongoing battle between Epic and Apple, users have been subjected to limitations when it comes to playing Fortnite on iPhone. But that could potentially change this year with the return of the title.
In addition, whenever the game returns to iOS and happens, it will not be available in Apple’s App Store. Fortnite will be available on cloud gaming platform GeForce NOW in October, NVIDIA’s product management manager confirmed.
Apple and Epic are going to a lawsuit, and the result will be finalized in the coming weeks. While the case revealed several interesting stories in both companies, iOS users were left in the dark when it came to enjoying the title battle royale. Users first identified by iMore will have the potential to play Fortnite on iOS in October through the GeForce NOW cloud gaming platform.
“In addition to the great team in Epic Games, we are working to activate a touch version of Fortnite that will delay the game’s accessibility. While the GeForce NOW library is experienced on mobile devices with the best controller, we have a great deal of effort to bring the game that over 100 million Fortnite players built, fought, and danced on the way to Victory Royale. We look forward to delivering a cloud-streaming Fortnite mobile experience powered by GeForce NOW.”
GeForce NOW is released in 2020 and is currently in the betting phase on Safari for iOS. Apple has launched GeForce NOW, a web-based platform for NVIDIA cloud gaming, as it restricts cloud gaming apps on iOS. Once removed from the App Store, GeForce NOW will be the first platform to allow users to play Fortnite on iOS.
