A Fortnite Android leak has appeared that seems to point to the game bypassing the Play Store entirely.
Right now, people who want to download "Fortnite" on iOS from the Epic Games site are redirected to the App Store. In better news, Epic Games has published an initial list of supported Android handsets that Fortnite will be compatible with, which we've got more info about after the break. In concrete terms, if Epic Games did not distribute Fortnite Mobile on Android via the Google Play Store, it would avoid giving up 30% of sales to Google, because applications distributed on the Play Store must use billing via the Google Play application. If that is indeed the case, Android users will need to switch on the ability to download content from unknown sources, something that some Android users might not be willing to do. Unlike iOS, Android users can download and install APK files outside of the approved app store, though there are some extra steps to doing so.
The hugely popular Fortnite: Battle Royale is coming to Android fairly soon, and Epic Games now updated the Fortnite website with a list of smartphone models that will be officially supported on launch. This is necessary to install any app outside of the Play Store.

Why Isn't Fortnite on the Google Play Store?If the game is being offered on Android via the Google Play Store, it's odd that the setup process isn't the same.
Epic Games said they will be bringing Fortnite to Android devices "sometime in the summer", but have struggled to keep hold of that promise, with no news of an actual release date.
It now remains to be seen whether this solution will be the one chosen by Epic Games. It's important to remember that is likely an initial list that will be added to as time goes by. We won't know for sure until we get an official announcement from Epic Games.
