Fortnite Installs Strike 15 Million Mark On Android
Epic Games made Fortnite available for Android last month on the 9th of August. Launched on the Samsung flagship Galaxy Note 9, the sandbox survival game has now hit 15 million downloads. After being confined to iOS and console for a long time, the game is now proving its mettle on the Android platform. A blog post by Epic Games reveals that the Fortnite has reached 23 million players on Google’s mobile. The Blog reads, “While we are in an invite-only phase for Android, our conversion from players being invited to playing is similar to that of the iOS beta”. However, the game is still not available on the Google Play Store. Fortnite fans have to visit the Epic Games’ website to install the game.
