Google has made it easier for Fortnite fans to not fall for fake listings by noting that the game isn't available on Google Play Store yet.

No-name developers often blatantly rip off aspects of popular games like their names and app icons off, misleading people who don't know better to install them. There's only one title (Battle Breakers), and it's not available yet.

Spotted by Reddit users (via 9to5Google), Google is now somewhat acknowledging the fact that Fortnite is not available on Google Play. Apple doesn't allow app downloads from anywhere but the official App Store on its mobile devices.
