In a mobile-focused update, Epic Games shares a light roadmap for Fortnite Mobile including the release window for Fortnite on Android devices. "We are targeting this summer for the release," the team says. "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."
In the blog post from the Fortnite Mobile team, a few specific features and mechanics were tackled:
New customizable HUD (now available)
Voice chat (incoming) with mute options
Optimizing gameplay and controls (incoming)
Performance updates and stability (incoming)
Stat tracking, something heavily requested by the community is in the works as well. Summer is the target for this feature, but that could change. The Fortnite mobile installation size is also being addressed:
"We are aware of the large installation size of Fortnite on mobile and are working to reduce that size. Over the next few updates we’ll be compressing the size down while maintaining performance. We’ll be making overall patch sizes smaller and adding the ability to download the content in the background!"
Fornite mobile is available now on iOS and Android users can expect to get some mobile battle royale action this sometime this summer. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more updates.
