After a lengthy lawsuit that resulted in Apple taking the L, the game is still MIA from the App Store. Sweeney isn’t happy about that, saying Apple went back on its word to reinstate the game. So it’s no wonder that he’s reveling in the return of Fortnite to iPhone and iPad. But Microsoft is seemingly joining in the rubbing of faces into the workaround.
