Google Acknowledges Epic’s ‘Fortnite’ Isn’t On The Play Store

How To Get Android 9 Pie Digital Wellbeing Feature On Essential Phone, OnePlus 6 Right Now

Despite Epic having clarified its release plans for the game several times, some fans may still expect Fortnite Android to be available on Google Play.

With the Android launch finally upon us, we project that, based on Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data, Google stands to miss out on at least $50 million in platform fees during the remainder of 2018 due to this unprecedented decision.

Fortnite is a mega-popular, fight-the-demons, post-apocalyptic video game, and it's about to come out on Android. On top of that, only owners of certain Samsung smartphones were able to play the game at launch. Pirated and stolen versions of apps are often released via APK's. We can only assume that when the game leaves beta, it will be available to any Android device that can handle it.

Note that you will need to wait about 24 hours after doing so for the app to actually work: When it does, you will see a Digital Wellbeing entry appear in Settings. Fortnite won't even be available for download on the Play store. Epic Games is handling the distribution itself, so searches for Fortnite in the Play Store turn up a lot of junk that isn't the game.

Unlike on iOS where Apple completely controls where you get your apps i.e the App Store, on Android devices users can choose to get their apps from anywhere they want.

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways.
