As the ongoing “titans into tweens” legal slap fight between Epic and Apple wears on, players of Fortnite on iOS have been left twisting in the wind. There may yet be hope on that horizon, however, as BBC has reported that Nvidia’s GeForce NOW cloud gaming service could be coming to the Safari mobile web browser, which could mean that the shooter could make its way into the lineup. Furthermore, the report points out that Apple doesn’t get a cut of item sales when the game is played this way.
It’s important to point out a couple of pretty large asterisks here: For one, the Safari version of GeForce NOW has yet to be formally announced, though that reveal is expected at some point during the winter holidays according to the report. For another, Fortnite’s inclusion to the service’s lineup on Safari has not been confirmed, with both Epic Games declining to comment and Nvidia simply saying that it would not comment on “any new clients coming to the service, or on the availability of any game on unannounced or unreleased platforms.” So it’s perhaps a matter of wait-and-see and whether Epic thinks it can legally get away with a thumb to Apple’s eye — something we know the company enjoys doing.
