Fortnite Battle Royale has been obtainable on iOS gadgets for a number of months now, however sadly, these on Android gadgets have been compelled to attend. Formally, the sport will launch on the cellular platform someday in summer time, however with Epic Video games but to supply a particular date, followers have been pissed off with the dearth of concrete info.
Whereas Epic Video games has but to reveal the precise Fortnite Android launch date, information mining of the sport’s most up-to-date replace might recommend that the launch shall be earlier than followers anticipate. As found by YouTube channel Fortnite Tracker, the most recent patch for the sport contained a number of recordsdata which appeared to reference the Android model. These recordsdata are referred to as “Android_Engine.ini,” “Android_Game.ini,” and “Android_RuntimeOptions.ini.” There may be hypothesis that if Epic is including these recordsdata to the sport now, then it should imply that the Android launch is true across the nook.
Nonetheless, the discovery of those recordsdata isn’t the one factor that has followers questioning if Fortnite‘s Android launch is imminent. Subsequent week is the primary anniversary of Fortnite‘s launch and Epic is internet hosting a particular in-game occasion to rejoice. The primary-anniversary occasion contains new cosmetics (which have been introduced and proven off), however some followers aren’t satisfied that particular birthday cosmetics and questlines are all that Epic has in retailer for gamers. What higher approach to rejoice its massively profitable recreation by bringing it to Android gadgets, giving greater than a billion extra individuals entry to Fortnite?
Nonetheless, others might argue that the Fortnite Android launch might nonetheless be a short time away, as summer time doesn’t formally finish till September 21. Which means Epic Video games nonetheless has two total months (as of the time of writing) to satisfy its promise to launch the Android model earlier than the summer time is out. Some can even notice that because the Android .ini recordsdata had been launched as a part of the sport’s main Season 5 replace, it might simply be that Epic is getting ready to launch the Android model someday through the fifth season quite than within the subsequent week or so.
Both means, the dialogue surrounding the Android model of the sport and its launch date reveals how keen followers are to play it. Some are even so keen that they’ve been duped by Android beta scams, ignoring warning indicators simply because they wished to get their arms on the sport. So hopefully Epic will put the hypothesis to relaxation and announce the discharge date quickly.
Fortnite is on the market on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS gadgets. An Android launch is deliberate for summer time 2018.
