When Epic Games brings its hugely popular battle royale game "Fortnite" to some Android smartphones and tablets later this month (it's now available on select Samsung devices only), it won't distribute it on Google Play. The first thing I did once Fortnite's beta went live for Samsung users yesterday was to look for a some kind of hack so I could play it on my Pixel 2. When downloading apps from the Play Store, it's usually only a matter of tapping the download button, confirming payment if necessary, and the download is processed.
Epic is aware of the security concerns that its decision to skip the Play Store brings, as well, Engadget reports.
There have already been numerous fraudulent Android versions of Fortnite available using official looking branding - and this is before Epic release the game.
The firm expects that when Fortnite rolls out to all supported Android devices, its launch revenue on the platform will closely resemble the first several months of Apple App Store player spending.
Lack of device memory and the running of multiple background apps is thought to be the cause of the issue, Epic Games told players.
Fortnite has launched on Android devices.

The TV star has also revealed her insight on why Melania Trump wore that infamous "I don't care, do u?" jacket. But days after issuing the warning, Ryan came to Omarosa's defense after Trump called her "a dog".
For those reasons, security researchers are saying that Epic Games' decision sets a unsafe precedent by encouraging people to remove the default security protections from their devices.
If you're impatient, there is an unofficial way to download the app beta, by heading to APK Mirror, and downloading the software directly. Their you will get some weapons and now Game starts. The warning also does not appear when searching the Google Play store through a Web browser.
Because of the said reasons, security researchers stated that Epic Games' ruling presents a risky situation for downloaders because it will encourage people to disable the default security protection from their devices.
For those that don't know, each week Epic Games releases three challenges for free and four challenges for Battle Pass owners.
