Apple are arguing that Epic’s bypass of their App Store policies was the first step in a pre-meditated, multi-faceted campaign spread across ” creative, technical, business, and legal” fronts.
Epic described their legal action as retaliation for Apple removing Fortnite from the App Store.

and Apple simply exercised their rights to terminate the Fortnite app following a breach of contract.
The legal process has already seen wins for both sides, as Epic have been unsuccessful in getting Fortnite added to the App Store while the courts deal with this situation.
However, a judge did rule that Apple could not terminate developer access to Unreal Engine for App Store games, as that would be a detriment to other developers who aren’t involved.
Truth be told, it’s hard to argue with Apple’s point that Epic pre-meditated their response and are framing it like “ retaliation ”, but maybe that’s just me.
