The ultimate battle royale game Fortnite is currently one of the most anticipated Android games. Epic Games, the developers behind one of the most popular games in the world right now had announced that Fornite For Android will come this Summer. With only a few weeks left now, Tim Seewney from Epic Games has announced that Fortnite will not be available via the Google Play Store.
The popular game will be available via the company’s own web client called the Fortnite Installer. This would download the Fortnite apk for you which you can use to install the game on your Android smartphone. The reason behind this move is that Epic Games don’t want to give 30% of the revenue to an “Open Platform” like Android. This is definitely a great news for games like PUBG Mobile, which will continue to rule the Google Play charts.
In a conversation with Touch Arcade, Tim said “First, Epic wants to have a direct relationship with our customers on all platforms where that’s possible. The great thing about the Internet and the digital revolution is that this is possible, now that physical storefronts and middlemen distributors are no longer required.” Second, we’re motivated by economic efficiency. The 30 percent store tax is a high cost in a world where game developers’ 70 percent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games.”
Seewney has no problem in sharing profits with consoles companies like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo as they are investing a lot in their hardware and in marketing that hardware.H e also said that the game will come to all the Android smartphones which are capable of running the game smoothly. With this announcement, we can expect Epic to launch the game for Android smartphones by the end of the August. Stay tuned to Sid Tech fro latest tech news, deals, reviews and more.
