Fortnite gamers have invested over $500 million by means of in-app purchases on iOS alone, according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower. This is a big milestone for Epic Games’ blockbuster fight royale video game Fortnite. The game has been on iOS for less than one year and it already has actually earned over half a billion dollars. Sensor Tower claims that Fortnite has actually crossed records set by other major iOS video games such as Supercell’s Clash Royale and Tencent’s Honor of Kings. Fortnite is a free-to-play fight royale video game where as much as 100 players are paradropped on an island and the last person or team standing wins.
The Sensor Tower report claimed that Fortnite gamers in the US accounted for about $320 million in profits on iOS, which is around 64 percent of the total income. Sensor Tower claims that Fortnite took 326 days to strike the $500 million profits mark on iOS, which is faster than Clash Royale (389 days) and Honor of Kings (405 days).
Sensor Tower noted that Epic Games would’ve wound up paying about 30 percent of its income to Apple, which is the App Store commission. This number equates to around $150 million, assuming that Apple hasn’t decreased its commission for a few of its highest grossing apps.
Fortnite earned around $1.53 million each day to attain its existing profits figure, Sensor Tower claimed. The report claimed that Fortnite is estimated to have earned over $100 million on Android because the game introduced on that platform despite the fact that it is not on Google Play.
This is the latest shocking profits figure that has actually been reported for Fortnite. The video game supposedly made a cool $2.4 billion in 2018, and at one point was earning around $2 million a day during Fortnite Season 5. It’s worth noting that Fortnite is also on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, so the overall earnings figure for Fortnite is a lot greater than just the App Store number.
