This is a bold decision as they developer will lose some players as PlayStore is where most Android users download their apps. Fortnite developers are counting on the popularity of the game and if players do not mind taking extra steps to get the Fortnite android on their phone. With this decision, players will download the game from their website and Epic will not have to share any money that it makes from the in-app purchases with Google as Google will take 30% share of the sales if Fortnite is on the Play store as the Apple does with the iOS version.
There is a press release that Epic have the desire to build a direct relationship with its players while trying to go around the Google’s store tax entirely.
