A mysterious message published by Tencent Games on Twitter suggests that the version could arrive earlier than expected
It seems that the expected arrival of Fortnite Battle Royale to mobile devices with the Android operating system is about to happen. After several months of waiting during which iOS users have been able to enjoy a beta of the most fashionable game, the long-awaited moment for the community of mobile players would be closer than initially expected.
This is what Tencent Games, the developer in charge of this mobile version of the popular success of Epic Games, has said in a message that it has posted on its Twitter account. In it, an image of the game appears with a date marked on a calendar: July 24.

It is logical to think that this date is the one that Tencent Games has proposed to launch the Android version of Fortnite. However, there is nothing 100% confirmed. It is not known that this will be the official departure date, nor that it will be released at the same time in all countries.
The mobile version is a Tencent Games thing
As with the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, the Fortnite adaptation for mobile devices will also be handled by Tencent Games. Something that makes sense, given the specialty of the Chinese company in this platform.
In addition, it influences the fact that Tencent is the direct owner of Epic Games as well as Bluehole and its experience in mobile ecosystems to have in its conglomerate of companies also Supercell, company after the development of successes such as Clash Royale, Clash of Clans and Brawl Stars.
Although it is not the ideal platform to boost the competitive level of players, everyone expects Fortnite to finally arrive at smartphones and tablets with Android operating systems. And although it is much more comfortable to play battle royale on PC or console, it is always good to be able to do it anywhere and level up the Epic Games account thanks to cross-platform development.
