Fortnite Avoiding Google Play Store Will Lose Google "At Least $50 Million"

The game will appear in the Samsung Game Launcher and in the Galaxy Apps store.

Epic Games has opted to launch the game first on Samsung phones - the beta is live now for most high-end Samsung phones launched in the last two or three years. There's only one title (Battle Breakers), and it's not available yet. While a version for Android was in the works, malware creators preyed on those Android users looking for a game that, unbeknownst to them, had yet to be released for their device.

After signing up for the beta on your Pie-powered phone and downloading Digital Wellbeing from the Play Store, it doesn't actually show up in your app drawer. You can toggle these apps on to permanently stay in your app drawer or just add a simple home screen shortcut.

Fake games on the Play Store have been a problem for some time. That 30 percent revenue cut is the same for Google Play.

Unlike on iOS where Apple completely controls where you get your apps i.e the App Store, on Android devices users can choose to get their apps from anywhere they want.

Fortnite finally comes to Android! After launching on iOS back in April, the phenomenally popular battle royale game is coming to Android devices this summer, and the developer has now revealed that the game won't be available through the Google Play store like most other games for the platform.

Even more concerning than the malware threat with just Fortnite for Android, however, is what this could mean for other app developers going forward.
