Google Play Store removes Fortnite after App Store’s Removal

Fortnite removed from Google Play Store

Epic Games’ Fortnite got removed by Google Play Store after the introduction of in-app purchase. It was brought by the game to offer V-buck in lesser price. As it was bypassing the in-app purchase option of Google Play Store, Google removed the game. Fortnite’s in-app purchase is bypassing the 30% commission of Google Play Store.

Not only Google Play Store but Apple’s App Store has also removed the game. In response, Fortnite has released a video to hit back with #FreeFortnite. After the video release, Epic Games sues Apple.

Google spokesperson’s statement about the removal of Fortnite to The Verge :

The open Android ecosystem lets developers distribute apps through multiple app stores. For game developers who choose to use the Play Store, we have consistent policies that are fair to developers and keep the store safe for users. While Fortnite remains available on Android, we can no longer make it available on Play because it violates our policies. However, we welcome the opportunity to continue our discussions with Epic and bring Fortnite back to Google Play.

Earlier, Fortnite was made available to the Android users in their official website. On April end 2020, it was made available in the Google Play Store, citing the threat notification of their game in Play Store by Play Protect. In 4 months, game got removed. Now, Android users can download Fortnite from the official website of Epic Games and Galaxy Store (Samsung).
