Fortnite Android: Popular shooter seeing Android release “this summer”

Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced that the shooter will be coming to Android this summer, after launching on iOS earlier this year.

The announcement was made via a blog post published on the official Epic Games site. The announcement was light on details, but promised that more information would be coming as soon as Epic has details to share.

In addition to an Android release, the blog post detailed a number of other improvements that will soon be coming to the mobile version of the game, including a customisation HUD, voice chat, and stability and performance improvements.

The official announcement follows numerous rumours about the game’s impending release after it launched first on iOS.

False starts

In fact, the game has been so hotly anticipated on Android that phishing scams have been popping up left right and centre as nefarious individuals attempt to use the promise of a new version of the game to harvest the personal details of unwitting players.

Until Epic Games shares more information about the port via its official channels however, it’ll still be a good idea to remain vigilant about any emails promising to offer access to the Android version. The developers official blog or Twitter account is the best place to keep abreast of developments.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now. Like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, it features a popular Battle Royale mode in which a hundred players fight to the death to be the last person standing.

It’s also free to play, which has made it incredibly popular with kids and has lead to a wave of Fortnite scare stories from the UK’s tabloid press.
