Epic Games are gearing up for the release of Fortnite on Android!

It's clear that Epic Games' Fortnite Battle Royale has taken over the world, the game has release on every single platform these past several months, apart from one, Android. However, it seems like the release of Fortnite on Android could be coming much sooner than you think.

Epic Games have always stated that Fortnite on Android is schedulled for a Summer 2018 release and although no official word has not been given on an exact date, a recent hint could have been given.

Tencent, the giant gaming company that owns part of Epic Games, is currently handling distribution and publishing of the game in China. Tencnt have just announced an apparent release date for their version of Fortnite Battle Royale for the Chinese market, which is revealed for July 24, 2018. Although this doesn't confirm a release date for Android, the news is also being linked to the company releasing Fortnite on Android in the region too.

It's likely that with the release of Fortnite on just about every platform going, they'll want to capatalize on an Android release as soon as possible. Despite the hint saying we could get an Android release this month, it's also worth taking note that Summer 2018 runs until September 23, so we could potentially still be several months away.
