No Fortnite on Google Play?

The answer is simple: Android users are free to install apps outside the Play Store, while those who use iOS must comply with the programs of the App Store.

Fortnite is still coming to the Android family of devices, but it appears as though it might not be a download available through the Google Play Store.

It's one year after the release of Fortnite and it doesn't look like Epic Games will be stopping any time soon. Perhaps we'll find out more about Fortnite on Android then.

Worldwide Creative Director of Epic Games, Donald Mustard, said he thinks players are "going to be blown away" from the prototypes that he has seen. As of right now, there is no official APK file to download, so fans are cautioned against downloading any APK files they may stumble across until further notice. Developer Epic Games reportedly made $126 million from the title in February of this year alone. If that is indeed the case, Android users will need to switch on the ability to download content from unknown sources, something that some Android users might not be willing to do.

The phrase "This is necessary to install any app outside of the play store" is the real writing on the wall here. Present Google Play policies require developers to pay 30 per cent of their sales earnings, which is a huge amount for certain developers to part with. Those apps are also not necessarily screened for malicious content or codes like cryptocurrency mining. The battle royale champion is also ready for the primetime. This may have to do with Epic wanting to avoid giving Google a 30 per cent cut of Fortnite's Android revenue.

The biggest scare with Fortnite being available via third-party sources is security. Its maker, Epic Games, says the Android version will arrive "this summer". Fortnite is rated as "T for Teen" by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and it indicates that most parents would be comfortable with their kids downloading the application directly from the internet.
