Why Isn’t Fortnite on the Google Play Store?

So the big question is: Why isn’t Fortnite Android on the Google Play Store? Well, the answer is likely simple: money. While most companies put their game on Google Play Store for the free publicity and legitimacy of the platform, Fortnite doesn’t have to worry about either of these things. Fortnite is such a significant property that Epic doesn’t need the listing on the Play Store to drive players, and people trust the name enough that they’re not going to be chased off by a few security warnings.



The Google Play Store takes 30% of all sales from apps. If Epic Games goes their own way and provides their own billing system, then they get to keep all that money. This isn’t an option on iOS since that platform doesn’t typically allow users to install apps outside the Apple App Store. However, since it is an option on Android, it makes sense that Epic would want to keep that chunk of money if possible.
