Fortnite on Android’s bypass of the Play Store could cost Google $50 million
After a delay that still feels way too long, Fortnite is finally coming to Android. It's launching first through the Samsung Galaxy App store, and after that, it will be available for anyone to download directly from Epic Games, Fortnite's developer.
This arrangement is unusual, to say the least. Legitimate apps are almost always distributed through the Google Play Store, because that way, you know that the apps are legitimate. Downloading software packages from unverified websites is an incredibly good way to install malware; giving users one place to download apps from where the software is vetted and verified helps keep things secure.
