Fornite may currently be one of the most popular multiplayer titles in the world. The game has been at the top of the iOS gaming charts since March, and now game developer Epic Games has announced that Fornite will also be shipping to Android this summer.
Unfortunately, that's all the creator has mentioned about the release, and stated that they would reveal more information as soon as they approach the release of the game. In a blog post that dealt mainly with the mobile version of the game, Epic Games buried the news about the game on Android. The article is titled "The State of Mobile".
The developer also announced a number of enhancements to the existing mobile version on iOS, including voice chat, which is similar to using the feature in another popular Battle Royale title. PUBG . Players can mute themselves or others, and the feature will work cross-platform. Other new features include a battery saver mode, which significantly reduces the graphics settings for lower power consumption.
Another feature added to the phone is the ability to track statistics that were previously limited to the PC version only. Fortnite will also receive improved Autorun functionality and reduced installation and update sizes to reduce storage issues for iOS users. Epic also said the game is "better optimized" for a smoother experience.
We do not have a fixed date yet, but considering that the summer does not go beyond August, we should expect Fortnite on Android by then.
