Fortnite for Android is coming on Google Play Store
Well, behind no featuring Fornite game in the Google app store, there is a valid reason. As a fan of this game, you might have noticed this game is not even featured on Steam, which one of the largest digital distributors of PC title and other popular digital platforms like Green Man Gaming and GOG.COM doesn’t have Fortnite in their list.
Though these Digital Game Distributors have a large number of audiences, which can help to gain users and download counts for the Fortnite game. The game is so popular free to play that doesn’t need any help or promotions.
Now Fornite has more than 125 million active multiplayer gamers and last year with this game Epic team has earned more than $ billion.
This game is only available on Epic’s website. However, this game is available on the Apple App Store. To download Fortnite for the iOS device, you will be redirected to the App Store. Same way, if this game comes live for Android, but it odd that it cannot be redirected from the Epic website.
