Fortnite Will Not Be Made Available on Google Play
The developer of Fortnite has confirmed it will bypass the Google Play app store when the game is released for Android smartphones. The Google Play store lets Android users buy and download apps using a simple interface, although Google takes a 30% cut of sales made.
Epic Games’ chief executive Tim Sweeney said 30% was “disproportionate” to the contribution Google made. The studio has not yet announced when the game will arrive on Android.
Fortnite Battle Royale sees 100 players land on an island to look for weapons and build defences. The person who survives the longest wins. The game is free to play, although gamers can choose to buy cosmetic customisations such as clothes and dance moves for their character.
Mr Sweeney said that Epic Games wanted to have a “direct relationship with our customers on all platforms where that’s possible”. The game is available to be played on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch through their official stores as well as Apple’s app store.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
