Fortnite has become a force to be reckoned with on the App Store. As if becoming the top gaming app on iOS wasn’t enough, it also joined the ranks of Netflix and Tinder that profit in Millions on the Apple platform.
Sensor Tower, a mobile analytics group, has released a report that Fortnite on iOS has raked in more than $25 million in its first month. The first half of April saw players spending almost a million dollars a day which beat Pandora and Tinder in earnings.
Apparently, according to estimates by Sensor Tower, Epic Games will cross $500 million on earnings across all platforms.
Fortnite was able to generate an insane buzz around its iOS release by making it an invite only event in mid-March. By April 2nd, it was made available to play for all users for free.
What’s crazy about the game’s earning figures is the fact that spending money doesn’t give you an added advantage over other players, but just allows cosmetic upgrades and skins, etc.
Fortnite is a free-to-play game for consoles, PC, and now iOS, of course.
