There are two different modes of Fortnite currently up and out in the wild. There is one called the Save the World mode. It is where you team up with a lot of players and attempt to save the world from a zombie infestation. The second one is named the Battle Royale mode. This one has been the most popular mode of the two by far, but how popular is it and how profitable is it?
You will learn how much money the creator of Fortnite called Epic Games is making each and every single day on just one of the many platforms that the game is currently available for, and the figure comes up to an insane amount.
GamesIndustry.bix is reporting that a new market report from Sensor Tower Store Intelligence has estimated that the popular game known as Fortnite on mobile devices alone makes an estimated $3 million each day. The amount comes to close to $100 per month, on just a single platform.
Apparently, the $3 million figure was what was last reported according to revenue data from July 13th, 2018. That was a record amount of spend on the Battle Royale title of Epic Games for mobile devices, beating out the last single day spend record of $1.9 million during the super hero themed launch of Season 4 back on May 1st, 2018. Aside from that, the fourth season also ushered in a brief cameo appearance from Thanos of Avengers Infinity War, which clearly helped boost both the appeal and the monetary spend from the users of Fortnite. Even though the Thanos cameo was not long lasting, the exciting Season 4 and heading into Season 5 the super villain was removed from the game. However, everything did not stop nor impede the moment that Epic Games has managed to build up for Fortnite.
On average, the daily spend following the startling July 13th record setting revenue run has totaled out to about $2 million each day. On top of that, it is limited to just iOS devices. GamesIndustry.biz states that Fortnite managed to beat out the record of PUBG Corporation achieved with the release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds when it became available on mobile devices.
Unfortunately, the latter game has been slowly dipping down in popularity while the former game continues to soar high. A lot of people see Fortnite as the future of gaming given its colorful graphics and unique approach to the competitive genre by adding in building mechanics that have really helped set it apart from the nearest competitors such as Battlefield and Call of Duty.
It seems like Fortnite is going to keep growing. Given that it is making nearly $100 million a month from the mobile devices alone, it is fine to think that it is making just as much from the home console and PC space as well. Basically, Epic Games is rolling in cash and could effectively fund about a dozen $100 million dollar projects at this point.
