The European Union's new Digital Market Act has cracked open Apple's billion-dollar walled garden, forcing Apple to allow companies like Epic Games to bring their own stores into the iOS environment. Thanks to EU's DMA, Epic can sell its own games and Fortnite V-Bucks on iOS and Google through its own storefront and keep 100% of earnings. To gain traction on mobile, Epic has sought and acquired the help of some partners.

"We're excited to be leading the charge and bringing Fortnite back to mobile, along with a selection of third-party partners that have expressed interest in joining us when we launch," said Epic's Steve Allison said at GDC 2024.

"With our expansion into mobile platforms, EGS will become the first-ever game-focused multi-platform store that will end up crossing Android, iOS, PC, and Mac, anchored by our players' Epic accounts."

The mobile version of the Epic Games Store will retain the same 88-12% revenue split in favor of developers in a bid to attract more games and content. As of November 2023, the Epic Games Store still was not profitable and it is not expected to be until the year 2027.

We plan to provide customers with a fantastic place to find the best mobile apps for their Android and iOS devices and interact with their friends, while providing developers with a distribution channel based on fairness and openness.
