Confirmed: Fortnite on Android will drive its bus past Google's 30% cut
04 Agosto, 2018, 02:10 | Author: Misty Newman
Speaking to The Verge, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney revealed that the team will distribute the game directly through its website rather than on Google's storefront, letting players download a Fortnite installer program that will install the game on compatible devices. As you'd expect, he mentioned that avoiding the 30 percent cut platform owners like Google typically take from game revenue was a motivator behind the decision.
"It's a high cost in a world where game developers' 70 percent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games", he said.
Fortnite is free-to-play on all platforms and that would be the case on Android as well.
Josh Miller/CNET On open platforms like PC, Mac and Android, Epic's goal is to bring its games directly to customers. Epic Games is now exploring the option of including Fortnite on various third-party stores in China, but it has nothing to announce at this time. There's still no set date for when the game will launch on Android.
On Android, would-be Fortnite players will need to navigate to Epic's website to download an APK that will prompt users to adjust their security settings specific to that one file and then download the game in full. The primary reason Epic turned to the iOS App Store is that Apple does not allow the distribution of iOS apps through unverified channels.
Epic Games announced that its highly-popular Fortnite game will soon be available for Android, but it will not come through the Google Play Store. The game is expected to rake in millions of dollars worth of in-app purchases, so 30 per cent of that would amount to a lot of money. Once the real deal is released, we'll let you know, as early as possible.
So why exactly is Fortnite ditching the Google Play Store? First, Epic Games wants to maintain a direct relationship with their customers. The game has already proven itself to be insanely successful, not only by finding its way onto millions of devices around the globe but also by managing to rake it more than $100 million in revenue in the time that it's been offered.
The developer didn't confirm when the game is going to be released. You should look carefully at the source of software you're installing, and only install software from sources you trust. Lastly, he states that Android's permission system will help protect users by informing them of what an app will be allowed to do. The rewards are visible to other users and act as social currency within the game.
