Fortnite for Android goes "off market"

How To Get Android 9 Pie Digital Wellbeing Feature On Essential Phone, OnePlus 6 Right Now

Eventually, when the game is officially offered to Android users, they will have to sideload Fortnite through Epic's website. And not just after the initial download, but for every update as well?

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. That's easy to do if you're a Fortnite fan with an iOS device.

Just fire up the Play Store on your phone, and search for "Fortnite Mobile" or some variation on the name to get the message.

When Epic Games launched Fortnite on Android earlier this week, it did so in an unprecedented manner. Now, the game is available from the App Store. This is mostly in an effort to avoid the 30% cut of revenue Google takes for every Google Play transaction. With the option on Android to release its app without going through Google's official channel, they also skip having to give Google a slice of the in-game purchase pie. But you can still install Android Pie right now via AOSP ROM. Developer "argraur" has successfully ported Android 9.0 Pie for the Nexus 5x.

Baker Mayfield’s First NFL Preseason Game Is Over
But after an exchange of possessions, Taylor took the Browns 66 yards on four plays for the first touchdown of the game. The Browns will have to figure out who their starting quarterback will be this year, Tyrod Taylor or Baker Mayfield .

Epic Games recently made the controversial decision to release the Android version of Fortnite on its own website rather than through the Google Play Store.

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

While this move will make Epic Games more money than otherwise, it will also set up a risky precedent for Google. The company looked to target two birds with one stone as it upgraded the S-Pen and made sure that Fortnite for Android became an exclusive for the Note 9.
