Mega-popular video game Fortnite came to Android last year, but it didn’t land on the Google Play Store. Instead, the multiplayer crap-shooter had to be side-loaded from publisher and make Epic’s website.

Things could be changing though, as 9to5Google reports that Epic is planning to submit Fortnite to the Google Play Store soon. Epic is apparently submitting the game with its own payment platform, as opposed to adopting Google’s payment infrastructure.

The Fortnite developer made the decision to skip the Play Store due to Google taking a cut of income, traditionally pegged at roughly 30%. Instead, Epic deters 100% of the currency when gamers spend money on virtual entries and emotes in Fortnite.

All apps submitted to the Play Store are required to use Google’s payment infrastructure if they render in-app purchases though. So it’s clear that Epic is hoping Google will make an exception. Unfortunately for Epic, it seems like the search beings might not be willing to bend the standards for Fortnite.

As foreseen, we’re not in Kansas anymore . …

” Android enables several app accumulations and alternatives for developers to distribute apps. Google Play has a business model and money plan that allow us to invest in our scaffold and implements to help developers improve successful jobs while also maintaining users safe ,” read a statement by Google to 9to5Google.” We accept any developer that recognizes the value of Google Play and expect them to participate under the same terms as other developers .”

It certainly sounds like Google doesn’t want to make an exception for Epic, but Fortnite coming to the Play Store would make it the more secure installation method in theory. The installer downloaded via the Fortnite website had a major security flaw upon open, theoretically accepting hackers to remotely position malevolent apps on a victim’s device. The web-based install method likewise opens the door for phishing affects and other schemes, duping consumers into thinking they’re on Epic’s website.
