While Fortnite continues to be a great success for Epic, some new figures have shown how much of a success it really is. According to Sensor Tower, two years after the game’s launch on mobile, Fortnite has made over a total of $1 billion in revenue.
Since it’s a free game, all that spending is coming directly from microtransactions. This figure doesn’t include sales made from consoles and PC, so the actual total revenue is likely much higher.
Fortnite say a large increase in spending during the pandemic, with $44.3 million spent in April of this year. Installs also saw a huge spike, seeing 6 million new installs. Both these figures are records for the past year, with the last major installs being in December of 2019 when it was 3 million.
The Google Play version of Fortnite, which launched in April, has already brought in $937,000. The United States has spent the most money on the game, $632.2 million to be exact (which is 63% of the total). In comparison, the U.K., which ranks No. 2, has only spent $38.2 million or 3.8%.
Fortnite’s total downloads across mobile amount to 129 million installs. The game also has 350 million registered users and hit a concurrent player peak of 12.3 million.
In other Fortnite news, Epic recently announced that Fortnite will be launching alongside the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Additionally, Fortnite was experiencing login issues due to the overflow of people trying to claim the latest free Epic Games Store title.
