Allow me to give a counter point regarding your theory about Apple. I read somewhere that Devs have two options submitting to Apple. The first box that can be checked is a "submit upon approval" box. The next box is a "submit at this date box." If the later date is submitted then the Devs specify a date the game hits the AppStore. I read this awhile ago and I'm not sure if this is true. It would, however, seem to explain why there are so many game trailers that state "coming to iOS" that have a specific date attached.
So yeah, assuming that Apple has this, MZ is probably already approved.
