Epic Games’ Fortnite Won’t Be Available On Google Play Store

Epic Games announced that the company will not be releasing Fortnite’s Android version through the Google Play Store.

In order to download the game, those using Android devices can get it straight from Epic’s website. Epic Games founder, Tim Sweeney, said that the company intend to avoid the 30 percent cut from platform owners such as Google and Steam, that generally takes a cut from in-app purchases. Epic made a similar decision before when the company decided to distribute Fortnite via its own launcher on PC and Mac instead of going through Gaben’s Steam.

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,” said Sweeney. There’s a rationale for this on console where there’s an enormous investment in hardware, often sold below cost, and marketing campaigns in broad partnership with publishers. But on open platforms, 30 percent is disproportionate to the cost of the services these stores perform, such as payment processing, download bandwidth, and customer service.

Additionally, Fortnite players that wants to use Android devices to play the game will have to download an APK from Epic’s website before downloading the complete game.
