Fortnite for Android is finally on the Play Store, after Epic Games yields to Google

Having held out for the past 18 months, Epic Games has today thrown in the towel and made Fortnite for Android officially available on the Google Play Store.

Since Fortnite’s launch on Android back in August of 2018, Epic Games has skirted Google’s mobile storefront by making its staggeringly popular battle-royale shooter downloadable exclusively as third-party software, meaning it’s been unavailable through the Play Store marketplace.

Epic Games has issued harsh words about digital storefront monopolies in the past, with company CEO Tim Sweeney once citing the 30% cut of revenue taken by Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store as “illegal” in a statement.
