Epic removes all Infinity Blade games from the app store

Finity Blade

The Infinity Blade trilogy is no longer available for purchase on the Apple app store. While a new entry in the series hasn't been made since 2013, Epic Games has continued to support the titles with free updates periodically over the last half-decade. Now, though, the studio is citing a lack of resources for keeping Infinity Blade up to the standards that Epic wants.

In an official statement, Epic states, "At Epic we strive to put players first and to provide a supported, full-fledged experience in every game we publish. With the development of Spyjinx and other projects, it has become increasingly difficult for our team to support the Infinity Blade series at a level that meets our standards."

If you've already purchased the games, you'll be able to redownload them. All in-app purchases have been disabled, but some more updates will be coming to Infinity Blade III over the next month. Epic is teasing "other surprises" alongside something called "Clash Mobs," so fans will be able to send off the series with one last hurrah.

Closing out, Epic says, "As we bid farewell, be sure to keep your eyes peeled! You may find Infinity Blade popping up in places you wouldn't expect." While it would be easy to assume this means the recently launched Epic Games Store, the first appearance has been in Fortnite. You can now wield the legendary blade in-game.

As for the future, I only hope that Epic does something else with the series. I always championed it as the best mobile game around and it's sad to see it fade away. Infinity Blade was basically an evolution of Punch-Out!! and showed that mobile games don't need to try and emulate console titles to be enjoyable. Is it too much to ask for a Switch port?
