At long last, Fortnite will be hitting Android devices sometime during the middle of the year. Specifically, and according to a blog post by Epic Games’, the game developer is “targeting this summer for a release.”
One of the primary reasons why Fortnite has yet to come to the Android ecosystem is because the current mobile version of the game is still relatively unstable, and has a tendency to crash. Beyond that statement, Epic Games didn’t release any further details about its development for the Android OS.
Elsewhere, Epic Games gave broad updates about what it was improving in-game. This includes a customisable HUD, cross-platform voice chat, and the reduction of file size for the game on mobile. It’s also working on game performance; improving the graphics quality, as well as adding a battery saver mode that increases performance when the graphics quality is lowered.
Fortnite’s entry into mobile eco-system first started when Epic Games released it for the iOS platform. To up the ante, Fortnite is also the first MMO shooter title to introduce cross-platform play between PC, iOS, PS4, and Xbox One player, though not between the last two.
