Epic Will Keep Fortnite Off Google's Store to Make More Money
04 August 2018, 02:12 | Antoinette Holland
Fortnite for Android will launch as a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 exclusive and will then remain a Samsung Galaxyphone exclusive for another two to three months, according to a source speaking to AndroidHeadlines. Epic Games has made a decision to not distribute the game through the Google Play Store for financial reasons. While the exclusivity deal helps Samsung establish its handset as a powerful mobile gaming system, it also helps Epic show off the strength of its game engine and showcases Fortnite running as smoothly as possible. Considering the huge cost of running millions of constant online games that is a model that shouldn't make sense but Epic has been quite brilliant in how it makes money from the game: it allows players to buy in-game currency that then allows you to customize how your characters look in the game, and it charges "battle passes" - now $10 - that open up a wide variety of fun challenges within the game with rewards for their completion.
Epic Games is confident about Fortnite for Android being as popular on the platform as it is on iOS.
Trump receives new letter from Kim
Army soldiers who fought in the November, 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir - 1,024 Americans are still missing from that battle. He said that DPAA has chest radiographs for about three-quarters of the missing from the Korean War.
Sweeney says players will need "a recent high-end Android smartphone" to run the game, although he couldn't divulge specific specs. When it does hit Android, EPIC wants to make sure that all of those profits make their way back to the company without passing through Google's pocket first.
Furthermore, Sweeney calls the 30 percent "store tax" a "high cost" in the game industry, particularly given the fact that Android is an open platform where Google is not distributing or managing all hardware, like Microsoft and Sony do with their respective consoles. It will distribute the game through the game's official website. Open platforms are an expression of freedom: the freedom of users to install the software they choose, and the freedom of developers to release software as they wish.
However, novice users are typically discouraged from doing so, because apps from unknown sources could pose a security risk.
It seems that the rule book for how to release an Android game is going straight out the window when it comes to Fortnite. Eventually, the game should be available on other devices, too. Users will be able to download it directly from the company's website. "We believe gamers will benefit from competition among software sources on Android", Sweeney said in a new Q&A.
