1. Why is the Fortnite App not in the Google Play Store?
The installation process for Fortnite Android is a bit special, the app is not available in the Google Play Store. Epic Games confirmed that an individual launcher has to be downloaded.
Why is Epic Games doing this?
- In the Google Play Store every App has to pay 30 percent of the money to Google! Epic Games dodges this.so smart
- Tim Sweeny the Epic Games founder also said that he thinks that it is time to challenge the default Google Play Store and show the user different options to choose from! Fortnite is big enough that the user will have no problem with that.ok man
Is that risky for me to download Fortnite on Android?
Yes of course, an independent download could include anything and should always be handled with caution. Google Play is great in terms of protection, malware, fraud, phishing or any other security issues!
But well, what can we do about it? Nothing! What we can rely on that Epic Games is a big company and they will not do something bad, hopefully.
