Apple Inc. axed on Thursday Epic Games' video game Fortnite from its App Store as the game maker introduced its own payment system, aiming to allow players to avoid paying $0.30 commission to the California-based tech giant's platform.

"Today, Epic Games took the unfortunate step of violating the App Store guidelines that are applied equally to every developer and designed to keep the store safe for our users. As a result their Fortnite app has been removed from the store," Apple said in a statement to The Verge.
