The message that pops up says that "Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play". For the time being, Google is just trying to make sure you don't end up downloading something that just looks like Fortnite in the Play Store.
The Fortnite beta for Android was announced yesterday during the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event by Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney. After launching on iOS back in April, the phenomenally popular battle royale game is coming to Android devices this summer, and the developer has now revealed that the game won't be available through the Google Play store like most other games for the platform. Epic has to share 30 percent of those purchases made on iOS devices with Apple due to the terms of the App Store. Below that, the Play Store continues with the normal search results, which includes the competing PUBG mobile battle royale game.
However, to get the game you will have to install it from a third-party source, which is a bit more complicated than just visiting the Google Play Store. On top of that, only owners of certain Samsung smartphones were able to play the game at launch.

Because there are no Android servers yet, this is the only way for Android players to get into a live game now.
Malicious developers have already been targeting Android users looking to download Fortnite. This is likely to deter developers from creating apps with the word "Fortnite" in the title to take advantage of the confusion over the release.
