Epic Games / Fortnite

Game developer Epic Games announced via a company blog post that Fortnite, one of the brand’s most popular products, will be coming to Android this summer.

“We are targeting this summer for the release” the blog post reads. “We know many of you are excited for this release, and we promise that when we have more information to share, you’ll hear it from us first.”

Epic also revealed that it would be adding new features to Fortnite, including a customizable HUD and voice chat, as well as tweaks to the game’s gameplay and installation size (currently, installing Fortnite to a mobile device requires a large amount of free space).

Yesterday, reports broke that the game was also due to launch on Nintendo Switch sometime in the future.

Stay tuned for more news as it develops.
