Fortnite Season 6: Why Android players may have to wait a while to get the game

Android players have been eagerly awaiting the game for far too long now

IOS users have put millions of hours into Fortnite and made Epic $200 million since it’s release.

Android users, on the other hand, have had to suffer silently and for the first time envy the fact they don’t own the latest iPhone.

Fortnite for Android still hasn’t got a firm release date and it seems like it now may be delayed even further, potentially as far away as Season 6.

Epic games have been in talks with Google about whether they will be selling Fortnite through their platform or independently from them.

Google play takes a huge 30% cut on any sales made from apps on their store.

This is delaying the process and stopping Android users from getting their mitts into Fortnite.

In better news…

There has been a leaked skin coming towards the end of Season 5 (which again suggests we could have to wait till Season 6 to see the game on Android), called Galaxy.

MystxcLeaks a Fortnite data miner discovered the skins and has theorised it will coincide with the launch of Fortnite on the Samsung Galaxy s9, making it a timed exclusive skin and very rare.

Luckily for Android players, the next season of Fortnite is going to be the best one yet!

Fortnite is currently at the top of their game.

With $100million being pumped into the competitive scene and profits having just reached $1billion, Epic Games aren’t too afraid of competition right now.

With Season 5 off to a great start and sales up, Epic may start to become lax with their updates, not keeping the game fresh and exciting (which is the game’s main appeal).

Fortnite Season 6 will have to be the best season yet in order to keep players interested.

With the new Season starting late September, Epic games have placed the season at the perfect time in order to compete with the big titles coming in October.

Both Call of Duty: Black ops 4 and Battlefield V will have Battle Royale modes and it’s possible Red Dead Redemption 2 may do as well.

This is the biggest threat Fortnite has had to face so far.

Both COD and Battlefield have massive audiences, a lot of whom have probably switched to Fortnite whilst waiting for the new games.

Fortnite Season 6 will have to pull out all the stops in order to keep players engaged.

Late September is the perfect time to start a new season with new locations, weapons, vehicles, skins and hopefully game modes.
