Epic famously challenged Steam’s 30 percent revenue cut by introducing a store that takes 12 percent, but it’s also been locked in battle with Google on the same grounds. Since its launch for Android, Fortnite has not been available on the Google Play Store due to Epic’s objection to Google’s 30 percent cut of in-app transactions. To circumvent the cut, Epic has opted to distribute Fortnite through an app accessible only via web browser.

But Epic has retreated for now, because as of today Fortnite is available on the Google Play Store. The surrender was prompted by what Epic characterises as a platform increasingly volatile towards software not acquired via Google’s own Play Store.
