Since the release of the Android-version of Fortnite Mobile has passed a little less than a month. However, the most popular “Royal Battle ” already shows impressive results.
15 million gaming customers in 21 days
Recall that Epic Games took a risky step and refused to cooperate with Google Play, not to give 30% of all income to the search giant. And apparently, the company has not lost. Today, Epic Games shared information about the success of Fortnite Mobile. According to the developers, the number of gaming clients on the Android operating system has already passed over 15 million accounts and the numbers continue to grow. The total number of players has reached 23 million.

Of course, such news says not only about the company’s huge revenue due to Google’s tax evasion, but also reminds about the problems. Since Fortnite Mobile is distributed not through the official Google Play app store, but through its own APK-file, many users have become victims of malicious software. Epic Games single point highlights the problem, warns users, and continues to work on the protection system.
At the moment, Epic has detected actions on 47 sites with names like “Fortnite for Android”. Many of which, apparently, are managed by the same bad actors. We continue to monitor the situation with a view to limiting their influence or restricting access by using links to a network of partners to combat fraud.
