Fortnite, including both the battle royale and the Save the World modes, is no longer receiving updates on Mac computers. Epic Games said that Apple isn’t letting it push updates to the platform.
“Apple is preventing Epic from signing games and patches for distribution on Mac, which ends our ability to develop and offer Fortnite: Save the World for the platform,” Epic Games said in a post on their official site. “Specifically, our upcoming v14.20 release will cause bugs for players on v13.40, resulting in a very poor experience. Since we are no longer able to sign updates and release fixes for these issues, beginning September 23, 2020, Fortnite: Save the World will no longer be playable on macOS.”
Fortnite’s battle royale mode will still be playable on Mac devices, but Epic said that it will “no longer [receive] version updates due to Apple’s actions.” Mac players will be stuck playing in the v13.40 Fortnite build.
This is more fallout of the ongoing legal battle between Epic Games and Apple. Apple previously claimed that the ongoing lawsuit is a “marketing campaign designed to reinvigorate interest in Fortnite.”
