With Fortnite's Android Release, Epic Will Skip Google Play

This stands in contrast to the iOS version of Fortnite, which is available to download right from Apple's App Store.

Fake games on the Play Store have been a problem for some time. App research firm Sensor Tower says that from now through the end of the year, Epic's end run around the Play Store will cost Google $50 million or more in lost platform fees.

Pep Guardiola claims Premier League champions have no more money to spend
This summer has already seen some mega-deals take place regarding Premier League clubs with Riyad Mahrez moving from Leicester City to Manchester City for a huge £67m, whilst Naby Keita joined Liverpool for £62m in a deal that was agreed on last summer.

Thing is, the company that created it, Epic Games, just announced that it won't be publishing it via Google Play, the market where most users - in the Western hemisphere, anyway - get most of their apps.

Malicious developers have already been targeting Android users looking to download Fortnite.

Manchester United Vs Leicester City
The club insist the 25-year-old Frenchman is not for sale at any price amid concerns that he has fallen out with Jose Mourinho . As Manchester United scrambled around chasing moves on transfer deadline day, an old tweet from Gary Neville surfaced.

Avoiding Google Play distribution means Epic gets to keep all of the in-app purchase revenue rather than paying 30 percent of it to Google. It's a noble cause and one that the likes of Apple and Facebook are also trying to make headway in, and for whatever reason, Google didn't manage to get it into Android 9 Pie ready for launch day.

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways. 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. And even though a beta version of the game will be made available exclusively to those toting certain high-end Samsung Galaxy models, Fortnite will not be offered to Android users through the Google Play Store. This is likely to deter developers from creating apps with the word "Fortnite" in the title to take advantage of the confusion over the release.
