Android Version Of Fortnite Won

With the IOS version racking more than $2 million a day, it won't be long before Epic Games unleashes the Android version of Fortnite.  A recent leak, however, suggests that the upcoming version may not be listed in Google's Play Store and will probably have its own dedicated website as per xda-developers who first got hold of the information. Though not yet confirmed by Epic, the speculation/theory is supported by images and source code acquired from the official Fortnite Mobile page.

Part of the theory explains that Epic Games is simply avoiding Google's standard 30% cut in all sales by games listed on the Play Store. Unlike IOS App Store, Android allows the installation of applications sourced from outside the Play Store, and by doing this, Epic Games can keep all the revenue generated by the game's in-app purchases. Fortnite for Android is expected to launch as a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 exclusive on August 9 according to the same post. Check out the mobile reveal trailer of the game below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
