When two companies battle, itâ€™s usually a good thing for the consumer. But I am almost certain when Epic and Apple battle, itâ€™s got absolutely nothing to do with YOU. However, Epic has positioned itself to look like it has everything to do with you and Appleâ€™s pretty much painted themselves into a corner.
Look, Iâ€™m not a developer and I have no idea what goes on in the mobile marketplace for apps and whatnot. So if something comes out of this that will benefit those developers, then sure. I havenâ€™t really had my finger on the pulse of this so I donâ€™t actually know if developers arenâ€™t happy with Apple like Epic is and, for whatever reason, this doesnâ€™t feel the same as the Steam Vs. Epic situation we had not too long ago. I mean, the Steam thing is similar, but I was hearing a far louder outcry from other devs and I canâ€™t remember the outcome in that but it wasnâ€™t anything like what is happening now.
Epic has sued Apple and Google. I mean, might as well hat-trick it and throw in Microsoft if you wanna go for the nuttiest thing you can do as a company award. Iâ€™m not saying theyâ€™re in the wrong, but those are two powerhouse companies (as is Epic as we find out during the show), but I guess if anyone could take that on, it would be Epic (or MS for that matter).
I guess weâ€™ll see how that plays out. In the meantime, Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,553 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise).
