Microsoft backs Epic’s request for a restraining order against Apple

Microsoft has filed a statement in support of Epic’s request for a temporary restraining order against Apple’s plan to remove its access to iOS development tools. Kevin Gammill, Microsoft’s general manager of gaming developer experiences, said in the filing that the Unreal Engine is “critical technology for numerous game creators,” and that blocking Epic’s ability to support it on iOS and MacOS “will harm game creators and gamers.” Epic filed for the restraining order last week, after Apple’s “devastating” response to its lawsuit over alleged “monopolistic practices” on the iOS App Store: As well as removing Fortnite, Apple also said that it will terminate of all Epic’s developer accounts and access to development tools on August 28.
