In August, Microsoft filed a declaration in support of Epic’s request for an injunction against Apple’s plan to remove its access to iOS development tools. The company said in the filing that the Unreal Engine is “critical technology for numerous game creators,” and that taking away Epic’s ability to support it on iOS and MacOS devices “will harm game creators and gamers.”

Today, Microsoft more overtly took Epic’s side in its campaign against Apple with a declaration of “10 principles for the Microsoft Store on Windows.” The statement makes no direct mention of Epic, Apple, or the iOS App Store, but very clearly draws a line between Microsoft’s online storefront and Apple’s.
