They also display the message that "Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play", this not only includes a silly typo but its the first time Google has went out to inform users that an app is not available on Google Play.
Even more concerning than the malware threat with just Fortnite for Android, however, is what this could mean for other app developers going forward.
Fortnite is a mega-popular, fight-the-demons, post-apocalyptic video game, and it's about to come out on Android.

Barcelona and Raiola working on €100m deal for Pogba

Epic Games' Fortnite will definitely not go through the usual distribution channels, as the developer announced that downloading the game via Google Play Store will not be possible. In addition to that, users who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 between August 10, and August 23 will get the option to either choose 15,000 V-bucks (in-game currency) with Fortnite Galaxy skin or a pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones. Below that, the Play Store continues with the normal search results, which includes the competing PUBG mobile battle royale game.
If more developers follow Epic's path, then the road to unauthorized and potentially harmful downloads on Android devices will only widen. Thankfully, the Play Store is finally doing something about it. The web Play Store does not have this feature, though. Sensor Tower estimates that Apple has made more than $54 million from the game so far via its 30 percent cut of all in-app spending on its store.
