Fortnite Battle Royale Developers Announce a Hotfix For Blitz Game Mode

The Android version of the game won't be coming this month and probably won't arrive for quite some time on the Google Play Store.

Reflecting on the way Epic reacted to the issue, Lewis-Evans sees it as a way to solve disruptive play through game design.

"However, this approach doesn't find every impacted account, or you might have created your Epic account after we checked a particular password dump".

According to data collected by Sensor Tower, the new mobile phenomenon has brought in a huge total of $1.5 million worldwide.




Not only has Fortnite Battle Royale raced to the top of the charts in over 40 countries, its mobile player base are paying for simple cosmetic changes which don't affect gameplay and Epic Games is cashing in.

Leaving this game, Pokémon Go grossed $4.9 million during its first four days, while Clash Royale grossed $4.6 million.

Not bad, especially when you consider it has been released as "invite only" and not released to the wider public. Since the beginning of the match, the circle is already formed, and the shrinking countdown begins as soon as you hit the ground. You'd better get out there and get to work.

A quick look at the responses to the Epic Games comment shows that many players appear to be in agreement with the default mode change, though several emphasized that the increase should be a "slight" one as mentioned to avoid having massive fortresses available on demand. As Epic Games' rolls out invites to more players, and they are eventually joined by their Android brethren, it seems likely that these incredible numbers will continue to grow. The Fortnite announcement only states that it is a "limited-time" mode.
