Epic Games has removed the Infinity Blade Trilogy from the iOS app store, citing concerns about being able to support it as developer Chair works on its next game, Spyjinx.
The company made the official announcement on its blog yesterday. “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,” Epic said.

Although new buyers can no longer access the games on the store, those who’ve already purchased and downloaded the games will continue to have access to them (and be able to re-download them) “for the foreseeable future.” All in-app purchases for the game have also been removed.
Epic ended the blog by hinting Infinity Blade may pop up “in places you wouldn’t expect,” – A nod to the sword’s sudden appearance in Fortnite as a weapon.
