The reasons that pushed Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, to bypass Play Store and make the game available through their site would be 2:

  1. Create a stronger bond with users
  2. The Play store holds 30% of the revenues of the application and according to Epic Games the revenues would be sufficient just to cover production costs.
