With the Android launch finally upon us, we project that, based on Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data, Google stands to miss out on at least $50 million in platform fees during the remainder of 2018 due to this unprecedented decision.

Spotted by Reddit users (via 9to5Google), Google is now somewhat acknowledging the fact that Fortnite is not available on Google Play. While a version for Android was in the works, malware creators preyed on those Android users looking for a game that, unbeknownst to them, had yet to be released for their device. However, for Android users, that won't be an option. Following Fortnite's success on Android other game developers will also follow suit.

Epic Games' free-to-play multiplatform game just crossed the billion-dollar threshold thanks to in-game purchases where players pay upgrades to customize their characters. That 30 percent revenue cut is the same for Google Play. Here's what you need to have in place to get in on that even if you are using an Essential Phone or OnePlus 6, the two other devices capable of running Android 9 Pie at this time. Check out our guide below to see how to install Fortnite for Android. So now when you will search for the keywords such as "Fortnite", "Fortnite Mobile" or "Fortnite Battle Royal" on Google Play app on Android, it'll show you a message - "Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play".

Samsung's exclusive rights to the Fortnite for Android beta will expire on August 13, after which the beta will open to dozens of more Android devices.
