Following the termination of Epic Games’ developer account, Apple is also ending Epic’s access to other services, such as “Sign in with Apple.”
According to Epic Games, Apple will no longer let users sign in to Epic Games using “Sign in with Apple” as of September 11th:
Apple will no longer allow users to sign into Epic Games accounts using “Sign In with Apple” as soon as September 11, 2020. If you used “Sign In with Apple”, please make sure your email and password are up to date. https://t.co/4XZX5g0eaf

MacDailyNews Take: Good. Apple should make Epic Games’ as miserable as possible.
On Tuesday, Apple countersued Fortnite-maker Epic Games asking for lost App Store fees and other damages while seeking an order to stop the game maker from operating its own in-app payment system.
Apple also this week released a statement maintaining that there’s no chance of the companies working together as things stand. Epic “repeatedly submit Fortnite updates designed to violate the guidelines of the App Store,” Apple said. “This is not fair to all other developers on the App Store and is putting customers in the middle of their fight.”
Epic says that customers who use Sign in with Apple to access their Epic Games accounts should make sure their email and password are up to date…
Customers who do not update to a standard email address and password will not be able to log in to their accounts, but after September 11, those who did not transition from Sign in with Apple may be able to contact Epic Games to have their accounts recovered manually.
MacDailyNews Take: When you bite the hand that feeds you, you risk going hungry.
