    Highlights of the Story

    • Fortnite is an online video game developed by Epic Games and released in 2017.
    • Apple and Google both removed the hit game from their app stores.
    • It comes after Epic Games bypassed their payment systems, to avoid giving them a cut of sales.

    We know Fortnite is not available for Android right now. Epic Games started the fight with Google and Apple by letting users initiate direct in-app purchases. This move comes so as to avoid giving Apple and Google a 30 percent cut of in-app sales. However, both the companies did not like this move and banned the apps from their respective Play Stores.

    Existing players who already have the app installed can continue playing that version. New players on Android can sideload the app, but new Fortnite players on iOS don’t have that option. However, nothing is changed in terms of Fortnite’s availability on other platforms such as Windows, macOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

    If you are a new player and want to install, follow the steps below:
