Google stops making $ 54 million from Fortnite outside Play Store

Last week, more precisely after Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 9, the long-awaited Fortnite was finally released for download only for the Galaxy S from the S7 and also for the Galaxy Note 8. And as everyone already knew, in fact , the game was not and will not be released on the Google Play Store.

As we had already reported, the game developer Epic Games has decided to open the game launch on the Play Store to get rid of the 30% fee charged by Google for any developer who wants to host something in their store. can be negotiated and reduced to up to 15%.

With the game out of the Play Store, Google will no longer be earning approximately $ 54 million dollars by the end of the year, data from Sensor Tower, an app management site. . According to the site, Apple has made more than $ 54 million since it was released for iOS in April this year.

<p>Perhaps you are wondering: also with this abusive rate of 30%, of course Epic would jump out. However, remember that Apple charges the same percentage of developers to launch something in the Apple Store. In this case, Epic was forced to pay, as Apple's system was closed.</p>
<p>Because Android is an open system, Epic was able to circumvent the Play Store and launch its game on other APK stores and websites, something that certainly didn't make Google's people very happy.</p><div class='code-block code-block-4' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

And you think Epic did the right thing by not releasing their game on the Play Store?
