The point you're missing is that Apple has already extricated itself. As I said: you have the phone, Epic has the game. Work it out. Apple won't stop you.You are missing the point so bad it's untrue, what Epic wants is for Apple to extricate itself from the whole process, this is the whole ****ing point mate.
What you want is the diametrical opposite of extrication -- you want Apple to provide the missing piece of software to allow those two items to mesh.
