It’s Rumoured Fortnite For Android Will Be A Timed Exclusive For New Samsung Galaxy

Fortnite is currently one of the biggest games going, and you can’t go a single day with hearing, seeing or probably even playing the iconic battle royale freebie. 

Arguably Epic Games’ biggest success, the game has reportedly racked up $1 billion for the company, and because the game is free-to-play, that’s $1 billion of microtransactions right there! 

Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and iOS right now, with pretty much the only platform you can’t play on being your Android phone. 

The iOS mobile version of the massively successful game came to app store a few months ago now, with a release date back in March of this year. 

Android users have been promised they’ll be able to join in the fun soon, but now rumour is spreading that Epic and Samsung have teamed up with the idea to make Android’s Fortnite exclusive to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for 30 whole days. 

Now before you angrily tweet at Epic Games, it’s important to note that this rumours has come from an unknown source, which was then reported by 9to5Google. 

It might not be the most unlikely thing in the world though, as the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to drop this summer – which is when Epic promised Android users their own version of Fortnite. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected towards the end of August this year.

If you were looking to pick up the phone you might be in luck though, as it’s being reported that the company will grant you $100-$150 worth of V-Bucks, the in-game currency for Fortnite, if you pre-order a Galaxy Note 9. 

If you’re not a fan of Fortnite but still want to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, you can opt for a bundle that includes a set of wireless AKG headphones instead.


What do you think of a timed exclusive for the Android version of Fortnite?
