Epic Games has stated that because Apple is blocking it from releasing patches and fixes for its games on Apple products, it will be shutting down Fortnite: Save the World on Mac on 23rd September, 2020.
In the latest instalment of Apple and Epic's regrettably public spat, Epic Games released a statement saying that because Apple won't let it release games or patches, it's no longer able to update the game.
'Apple is preventing Epic from signing games and patches for distribution on Mac, which ends our ability to develop and offer Fortnite: Save the World for the platform,' Epic said (thanks, The Verge). 'Specifically, our upcoming v14.20 release will cause bugs for players on v13.40, resulting in a very poor experience. Since we are no longer able to sign updates and release fixes for these issues, beginning September 23, 2020, Fortnite: Save the World will no longer be playable on macOS.'

For those of you who might have recently spent your hard-earned money on Save the World's packs, Epic says it is issuing a refund for all players who purchased any Save the World Founder's or Starter Packs (including Upgrades) providing they played the game between 17th September, 2019 and 17th September, 2020.
'Additionally, any purchased V-Bucks spent on Llamas on macOS in this period will also be refunded,' Epic added. 'As of September 17, 2020, Save the World Starter Packs will no longer be available for purchase on macOS.'
In case you were wondering, there's no such problems for Fortnite's infinitely more successful alternate mode, Fortnite: Battle Royale. However, although Epic did confirm that updates for that are no longer being deployed on Mac right now, either.
'Fortnite: Battle Royale remains playable for Mac users at this time on the v13.40 build, but is no longer receiving version updates due to Apple's actions.'
It's the latest development in the two megacorps' public falling out that ignited when Apple blocked Fortnite from the App Store after Epic Games circumvented Apple's (and Google's) systems to retain 100% of the funds generated by its in-app microstransactions.
The legal dispute is expected to drag on for months, yet we've recently heard an astonishing claim from Apple that suggests Epic only started the lawsuit to bolster waning interest in Fortnite.
The latest volley from Epic Games against Apple in their fight comes at the loss of Mac players on Fortnite: Save The World. The company posted this notice last week (which we have a snippet for you to read below) letting Mac users know that due to their continued fight with Apple has prevented them from sending patches and updates to the game. Because of this, they're putting an end to it and sending out refunds to players. While it is a letdown for those who have enjoyed a version of the game that isn't battle royale-focused, we're guessing this is only temporary. We're guessing that whenever the lawsuit ends, and if the two companies ca be amicable toward each other, the game will eventually come back. But with recent filings showing the two companies being very bitter toward each other in court, that may be a long time coming.
