Epic Games has pulled the Infinity Blade games from Apple’s App Store, saying it will no longer sell the trilogy or in-app downloadable content for the iOS games. In a statement announcing the removal of the Infinity Blade trilogy, Epic said that other projects, including the J.J. Abrams/Bad Robot game Spyjinx, would be its main focus.

“At Epic we strive to put players first and to provide a supported, full-fledged experience in every game we publish,” Epic Games said. “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 it will continue to support Infinity Blade 3 over the next month with special items, “updated Clash Mobs and other surprises.”

Chair Entertainment and Epic Games released the original Infinity Blade in 2010. It was the first iOS game to run on Epic’s Unreal Engine. The company released two sequels, Infinity Blade 2 in 2011 and Infinity Blade 3 in 2013. Chair announced in 2015 that it was working on an action-strategy RPG known as Spyjinx with director/producer J.J. Abrams.

In addition to Spyjinx, Chair also works on Fortnite. This week, Epic revealed that swords were coming to Fortnite as part of season 7, including the titular Infinity Blade itself.
