Epic has released new details of 'Fortnite's upcoming release on Android.



The title has already launched on iOS and the world-famous developer has now confirmed that the record-breaking title won't be available through the Google Play store, as is the case for most other games.

Epic has explained that the decision was, in part, taken because of the 30 percent so-called store tax that would typically be applied to purchases made on Google Play.

The developer said: "It's a high cost in a world where game developers' 70 per cent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games.

"And it's disproportionate to the cost of the services these stores perform, such as payment processing, download bandwidth, and customer service."

Last month, meanwhile, it was reported that 'Fortnite' makes around $2 million per day on mobile in mircotransactions.

Although the battle royale title is free to play, its in-game purchases earn a lot of money from users buying upgrades and add-ons.

Sensor Tower said the iOS version of the game brought in an average of $2 million a day over a 10-day period after Season 5 started.
