Minimum Requirements to get Fortnite Mobile for Android

Fortnite Epic game

Fortnite game for Android is soon to hit the internet, though according to a recent report, the game might skip google play, that is, we might be unable to download this game from Google Play rather via the Fortnite installer.

According to Tim Sweeney, Epic Games CEO, "the Fortnite Game will be coming to all Android devices that have met up with the requirements of running it stable and with good performance. Stay tuned for details of the launch timing."
He added that Fortnite will be playable via the Fortnite installer and will not be available in Google Play, the reason being that the company doesn't believe in offering 30% of Fortnite’s revenue to "Games & Apps market" such as the Google Play Store.

Tim Sweeney said, “ The 30% store tax is expensive in a world where a 70% revenue going to the game developers must cover all the cost of developing, operating and supporting their games before thinking of how much profit is earned." This means Epic wants to build a direct relationship with its customers across all possible platforms.

Two key requirements to having Fortnite Game on Android is an Android version of 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, and the Android should be powered with 3GB RAM, at least.
