Epic Games have revealed that Fortnite will not be available to download from the Google Play store when it's released for Android devices. As for the specific reasoning behind their decision to cut out the Google Play store, Sweeney said that the store's 30 percent "store tax" is primarily responsible.
Fortnite has become a cultural phenomenon over the previous year, with in excess of 125 million registered players and references to the game dominating social media and even goal celebrations during the recent World Cup.
Epic wants to have a direct relationship with our customers on all platforms where that's possible. Epic is now working on a delivery method for Chinese customers.
The second part of the equation has to do with Google's 30% cut off of profits.
This is due to the fee Google charges developers to sell their products through its system - so instead, as reported by Eurogamer, Epic will use an independent website. We're intimately familiar with these costs from our experience operating "Fortnite' as a direct-to-customer service on PC and Mac".
Speaking to Games Beat, Tim Sweeney stated that the mobile version of Fortnite for Android devices will be available for download directly from the developer's website and not Google Play.
Additionally, there's no way to bypass going through the Apple App Store when launching an app for iOS.
"In our view, this is the way all computer and smartphone platforms should provide security, rather than entrusting one monopoly app store as the arbiter of what software users are allowed to obtain".
Epic Game's plans to release Fortnite on Android later this summer.
Source code deciphering done by some XDA Developers users (EDIT: Apparently Reddit user thesbros) found some very interesting factoids about the Fortnite release on Android. In other words, additional Galaxy devices will gain access to Fortnite, but not all Android devices. Depending on your Android version, you may have to venture into your phone's security settings, enable "Unknown sources", and disregard Google's warnings about the potential dangers you're about to unleash. That's reasonable for consoles, but not for open platforms like Android, according to Sweeney. The only time Fortnite relies on a 3rd-party channel for availability is when it's absolutely required, such as it is on iOS.
