Fortnite’s two-year earnings are exactly $ 9.1 billion
The two-year earnings of Fortnite, the popular battle royale game, have been announced. Here is Fortnite’s two-year earnings.
Fortnite, one of Epic Games’ popular games, is highly popular among battle royale games. In particular, it has been revealed how much Epic Games has earned from Fortnite in two years, which has been on the agenda due to the free games it has given on the Epic Games Store and the lawsuit between Apple.
As it is known, the Fortnite fight between Epic Games and Apple continues. When we went to the beginning of the topic, Epic Games, the producer of the Fortnite game, added an alternative store to the Fortnite game store. Stating that this alternative store was against App Store rules, Apple removed the Fortnite game from their platform. The parties filed a lawsuit on this issue, and documents related to these cases have recently appeared on the internet. With these documents, it became clear how much Epic Games earned from the Fortnite game in two years.
According to the documents released in January 2020, Epic Games has made a total of $ 9.1 billion from the Fortnite game in 2018 and 2019. To give clear numbers based on the documents, Epic Games generated $ 5.4 billion in revenue in 2018 and $ 3.7 billion in 2019. Although there is no data for 2020 data, Epic Games’ revenue from the Fortnite game is thought to have declined.
It is claimed that it will decrease to 2.8 billion dollars in 2020 due to market saturation. Of course, the removal of the game from the Apple ecosystem has a major impact on the decline in the revenue Epic Games earned through the Fortnite game. Finally, although there is no official data, it is seen in the Sensor Tower data that Fortnite earned $ 1.2 billion only on the iOS platform. The Fortnite game is currently known to have over 400 million players.
