Google Play Store notes.

The userbase of Android is much higher than iOS so even if the Google Play Store doesn't charge fees as high as Apple, its still a huge loss for the company, at least $50 million as suggested by data analysts.


The Fortnite beta for Android was announced yesterday during the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event by Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney. No-name developers often blatantly rip off aspects of popular games like their names and app icons off, misleading people who don't know better to install them. For the time being, Google is just trying to make sure you don't end up downloading something that just looks like Fortnite in the Play Store. While a version for Android was in the works, malware creators preyed on those Android users looking for a game that, unbeknownst to them, had yet to be released for their device.

Because there are no Android servers yet, this is the only way for Android players to get into a live game now.


Fortnite has generated over $180 million in just a few months when it was made available in late March. Epic has to share 30 percent of those purchases made on iOS devices with Apple due to the terms of the App Store. Will going off market plunge you into Android gloom? Fortnite Android is one of - if not the - most talked about apps available today, and the battle royale trend has been around for a while.

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