Fortnite on Android Will Not Be Releasing Through Google Play

Fortnite Mobile Won't Be Available on Google Play Store, EPIC Reveals Why

Fortnite Mobile Won't Be Available on Google Play Store, EPIC Reveals Why

It's beaten out earlier competitors in the "battle royale" genre with a cartoony art style and consistent additions to weapons and gameplay mechanics. One of the reasons why Pokemon GO ended support for some iOS devices is because developer Niantic wanted to keep pushing the experience further.

"Fortnite will be coming to all Android devices that are capable of running it stably and with good performance", Sweeney asserted.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games around right now, so regardless of its release strategy, it will find an audience. ut it will be interesting to see how the game performs outside of the Play Store - and whether or not this is a sign of things to come.

Android apps can be installed either via the Play Store, which is essentially the same as Apple's App Store and offers a huge amount of built-in protection and security, or they can be installed in a process called side-loading.

The only true Fortnite download for Android isn't out just yet.

What Dustin Johnson said after winning RBC Canadian Open
Andrews, Scotland. "But I was, like, 'This is very chip-in-able and if I do it with the jersey on, it's way cooler'". I felt like I hit the ball plenty good enough to be under par after two days, and I was five-over or something.

Interestingly, we still do not know how exactly will Fortnite be distributed on Android. Inexperienced users, notably children, do not, opening them up to rogue installations of malware, spyware, and other generally undesirable stuff.

Those kinds of services - the actual cost of which Sweeney is "intimately familiar with" from Fortnite on PC and Mac - will instead be provided by Epic itself, with players using a payment method associated with their account for purchasing in-game currency.

"Epic's goal is to bring its games directly to customers". Fortnite made $15 million during its first three weeks on iOS alone - we're no mathematicians, but 30% of that is a lot of money. If you look at it, the stores on the smartphone platforms actually do very little. If Epic could cut Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo out of the loop of its microtransaction profits, it would. With Fortnite, there's been a relentless stream of fakes aiming to attack unsuspecting Android phone users of all sorts.

This is an unprecedented move for a game with as big an audience as Fortnite enjoys. And that opens the door for other malware that would normally be kept off the phone - assuming that users don't immediately put back safety controls once they have downloaded a legit copy of the game.

According to Sweeney, the specific reasonings behind the decision are that the company wishes to maintain a "direct relationship" with customers in relation to Fortnite and its available platforms.
