Why ‘Fortnite’ will not be Available on Playstore?
EPIC has been outspoken about the Playstore’s tax policy which is 30% and found it really high because they do not provide services according to the cost. According to them how they expect to cover all developing and operating costs in the remaining 70%? Because of this, inappropriate tax ratio, they have decided to develop their own platform.
