OR epic Games, the Fortnite company, continues the controversy against Apple policy, and apparently has a new supporter.
A lawsuit filed by Microsoft states that her latest threat Apple to interrupt her access epic Games from its developer tools Apple would harm their business (Reuters)
Kevin Gammill, General Manager of its Gaming Developer Experience department Microsoft, mentions the importance of Epic's Unreal Engine and what would happen if the Apple choose to terminate access to developer tools.
It states that the Unreal Engine is a "critical technology" for many game developers, including MicrosoftAs it provides "graphics, rending, physics, sound and other technologies that work on many platforms".
Most importantly, however, Gammill points out that many developers do not "have the resources or capabilities to build their own game engine and use third-party engines."
If Epic Unreal Engine cannot support games for iOS and macOS, the Microsoft should select or leave customer support on the iOS and macOS platforms or choose a different engine to develop new games.
