Epic Games has announced that its Battle Royale game Fortnite has gained 350 million registered players, who collectively spent over 3.2 billion hours in the game in April. “Fortnite now has over 350 million registered players! April, players have spent over 3.2 billion hours in-game, âthe company said in an official tweet.
Fortnite also hit its new attendance record last month at Travis Scott’s Astronomical Concert. During the virtual show, Epic Games recorded the presence of 12.3 million players connected simultaneously.
Last month, Epic Games released its Battle Royale game through the official Play Store on Android. The game was available for Android 10 since mid-2019. However, Epic Games has decided not to include the game in the Google Play Store.
It was originally released for the Android platform last year in partnership with Samsung. The game was released through an official Android channel, which means the company will now pay Google the 30% discount demanded by the Play Store for all in-app purchases.
Earlier, Epic had tried to get an exemption from the 30% cut, calling the fees “illegal” for platforms with more than 50% market share.
