Pirated and stolen versions of apps are often released via APK's.
When Epic Games launched Fortnite on Android earlier this week, it did so in an unprecedented manner. Additionally, to download files outside of Play Store requires users to tinker around with security permissions. The company feels that the game is so popular that eventually Android users with compatible handsets will flock to its website to install Fortnite, even without a Play Store listing.
This long waiting time has perhaps lead to some impatience, and thus users are using an APK to download Android Fortnite before it's release. As spotted by a Reddit user, searching for Fortnite or Fortnite Battle Royale will yield a warning saying the game isn't available on the Play Store. Now, the game is available from the App Store. However, the millions of kids who just want to play the latest and greatest game probably aren't aware of that.
Avoiding Google Play distribution means Epic gets to keep all of the in-app purchase revenue rather than paying 30 percent of it to Google.

Malware can also come bundled with the actual official Android version of the game downloaded from an unofficial third-party.
