Fortnite on Android will Not Be on the Google Play Store - Epic will be Hosting their App
On the surface this sounds like a pain because Android users will have to go to another app store to get another app. Here's the positive side to this move. The positive aspect is that Epic will not have to compensate for the 30% fee for in-app/store microtransactions that Google takes. By Epic hosting their own app, they no longer have to pass on these costs to the users and on to themselves. The one thing that I have a concern with is that Epic HAS to a good job of marketing their game and let their users know where to get Fortnite for Android.
