At this point, whether you're a gamer or not, there's a good chance that you've at least heard about Fortnite. The Android operating system allows users to download programs from third party services unlike the iOS, which restricts app downloads to the App Store only.

Epic Games' decision to not list Fortnite on Google Play could cause Google to miss out on over $50M in platform fees.

When Epic Games brings its hugely popular battle royale game "Fortnite" to some Android smartphones and tablets later this month (it's now available on select Samsung devices only), it won't distribute it on Google Play. It's steering people away from fake and possibly risky apps that might try to cash in on the confusion of Fortnite not being in the one place you'd really expect it to be.

Only certain Android phones can run Fortnite.

Here's the problem. You have absolutely no idea what's in a modified.APK file. However, underneath this message is a link to the Android version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is available via Google Play. As such, the company is taking action, and is showing a warning to anyone who searches for Fortnite in Google Play.

Samsung gained exclusive rights to the Android version of Fortnite for its phones and tablets for three days, with the game having released last week during the Galaxy Note 9 launch event. Make sure you've signed up for the beta and check your emails regularly as Epic is updating compatible devices daily. But Epic Games has decided against releasing Fortnite on Google's app store, which means users will have to download the game using an APK. From there, you'll be able to start playing. You'll either have to download the game through Samsung's Game Launcher or from Epic's website.
