After developers implemented their own in the App Store system on Thursday, Apple has removed Epic Games’ Royal Battle game Fortnite from the App Store.

Apple said in a statement to The Verge that it plans to work with Epic to “resolve these infringements,” but it does not intend to establish “special arrangements” for the company.

Epic’s approach seems to be designed to provoke Apple’s response, as Fortnite Studios listed in its new iOS update how to use Epic’s in-app payment system will lower prices. For example, if you use Epic direct payment instead of the standard Apple payment processing program, 1,000 V-bucks is approximately equal to 10 US dollars in Fortnite game currency, which now only costs 7.99 US dollars. Usually, the amount is $9.99.  This makes the new arrangement a pro-consumer act rather than a greedy power act.

As of now, those who have downloaded Fortnite on iOS can still access the game; since Apple withdrew the game from the App Store, only new downloads are disabled.
