Epic Games has finally added its successful game Fortnite in the Google Play Store after a year of resistance, while she states that she is not so happy with the fact that she has to do it. On the other hand, you can download it Fortnite on your phone from Google Play Store.
When it was released Fortnite on mobile in 2018, Epic said it will only offer the game from its own website. According to CEO Tim Sweeney, the company does not approve of Google receiving 30% of the sales made through its platform.
But Epic Games was forced to do so because Google has made it very difficult to run Android applications outside of its ecosystem. According to the company as reported by IGN:
After 18 months of operation Fortnite on Android devices other than Google Play Store, we came to a basic realization: Google puts software outside of Google Play at a disadvantage through technical and business measures. Because of this, we released it Fortnite for Android devices through Google Play Store.
Of course no one can say for sure if the resistance to adding the game to Google Play Store due to moral or economic reasons. Despite the outrage or injustice, however, I suspect that Epic will gain many more players this way.
