Fortnite for Android goes "off market"

Fortnite on Android Fortnite for Android goes "off market"

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.

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

There is no Fortnite Google Play Store listing because Epic Games is bypassing the world's largest app store.

Sensor Tower also says that Epic has grossed $180 million from iOS users since it first became available on March 15th via invitation to iPhone and iPad users.

This week, much has been made of the fact that the Android version of Fortnite will not be available through the Google Play marketplace. It's a big pie for Epic games, which has made over $1 Billion in revenue from in-app Fortnite purchases (for both PC and mobile ) by the start of this month.

Global team gives medication to sick killer whale at sea
J50 is the sick whale that a team of experts are hoping to save by giving her antibiotics or feeding her live salmon at sea. Depending on the conditions, the team could gather samples and treat J50 with antibiotics on the same day, he said.

Epic Games' free-to-play multiplatform game just crossed the billion-dollar threshold thanks to in-game purchases where players pay upgrades to customize their characters. 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.

Fortnite finally comes to Android! If Epic Games finds that the economic benefits outweigh any issues that arise from being MIA in the Play store, perhaps other Android video game and app developers will seek to go around Google, regardless of the security risk to its own users.

While this move will make Epic Games more money than otherwise, it will also set up a unsafe precedent for Google.
