Fortnite Battle Royale Refusing Google’s Bondage!

By  | 

Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the biggest games in the world right now but it is available on every major platform. Well, this is with the exception of Google Android as the mobile system is still pending to receive the Fortnite Battle Royale app.

If reports from earlier today are to be referred to, Epic Games will be porting the game to Android but they won’t go through Google’s Play Store. Epic’s CEO made this clear earlier today that the company does not want to comply to Google Play’s 30% revenue share.

Tim Sweeney quoted that the percentage taken by Google is disproportionate hence they will explore other ways to get the game out on Android.

From one perspective, Epic Games may look greedy but a second view will tell suggests that Google is greedier. What we are particularly interested in seeing is how Google will respond to this and also how the move to avoid Play Store will influence other app developers.
