Fortnite for Galaxy Tab S4 might be an exclusive release as well

While it hasn't been officially confirmed as yet, multiple reports have suggested that Fortnite for Android is actually going to be a timed-exclusive for the Galaxy Note 9. The most popular game on the planet will soon be released for Android and it's believed that Samsung and developer Epic Games has inked a partnership to launch the title with the Galaxy Note 9.

However, it appears that this exclusivity may not be limited to the Galaxy Note 9. Some evidence has surfaced to suggest that Fortnite for Android may also be exclusive to the recently launched Galaxy Tab S4 as well. The new tablet will be released on August 24 which is also when the Galaxy Note 9 is supposed to be out.

Fortnite for the Galaxy Tab S4

Previous reports have suggested that Fortnite for Android will be a 30-day exclusive for the Galaxy Note 9. The game is even expected to be a Samsung exclusive for up to three months.

This means that once those 30 days are up for the Galaxy Note 9, the title will be exclusively available for other Samsung devices like the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 8 for up to 90 days. That's obviously bad news for other Android device owners who may not be able to play the game on their devices until December 2018.

The Fortnite Mobile on Android installer APK is now floating around online. That's because Epic Games has decided to not release the game through the Google Play Store. That's why it's possible that Fortnite for Galaxy Note 9 might actually be pre-installed on the handset. The APK suggests that the initial 30-day window for the Galaxy Note 9 might apply to the Galaxy Tab S4 as well.

It's pertinent to mention here that while the Galaxy Tab S4 was announced last week, Samsung didn't mention anything about Fortnite exclusivity. If this is indeed going to happen then it might be confirmed for the tablet alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9.
