Fortnite, the epic battle royale game has been trending for a long time now prompting more users to join in the online survival game. While the game is available on PC, PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox, and the iOS platform, the Android platform is still left out.
There are several rumours that Fortnite is coming to Android, but the official release date has not been revealed. Many sources speculate that the game might make it to Android by September while others say it may come earlier.
Fortnite has been largely successful on iOS with the game raking in 25 million dollars in its first month of release on the platform. Playing the game is free, but there are in apps customisations available which many players love to purchase.
Before the release date though, Epic Games, the makers of Fortnite has released a list of Android smartphones that will be able to play the game when released. While many devices are left out, I believe many dedicated Android gaming smartphones will be able to handle the game’s specifications.
Flagship’s like Samsung Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel 2 made the list. Surprisingly though, OnePlus 6 didn’t make it, so also Xiaomi. Hopefully, when the game is released, we will be able to test it with our various devices if it is compatible.
