If Epic has the means to do that, it makes sense, because the company will have more control over distribution, both of the game itself and updates.

As the biggest game on the planet at the moment, there is little sign that Fortnite's popularity is slowing down any time soon, and with the game preparing to head to Android at some point in the future, one new development has shown that the game will skip one of the largest Android game distributors around. The game will be available on a multitude of Android devices which will be able to run the game without any performance or stability issues.

However, these platforms are tightly controlled, and make it hard for people to install software from unofficial sources. This isn't allowed on iOS so the developer has no choice but to distribute the game through the App Store. People will attempt to port it to other devices by modifying the APK.
