Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play battle royale online video game developed and published by Epic Games. It was released in 2018. Since then, it became a very popular game that is played by millions of people every day around the globe. All thanks to the cool and unique mechanics and features like building and editing. Earlier this week, Sensor Tower Store Intelligence estimated that the Fortnite Mobile earned $1 Billion in lifetime player spending.
This can also be attributed to the current lockdown situation arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the achievement of this major milestone follows one of a kind musical journey featuring Travis Scott from April 23-25. This uniques experience was called “Astronomical” and it also had the world premiere of a brand new track by Travis Scott. It was a five-part concert and mobile gamers from various timezones were able to tune in to hear the artist’s latest creations.
Another factor that could have made Fortnite Mobile earned $1 Billion is it’s free to play. Players don’t need to invest their money to battle against their friends. All these factors could have played a role in the increased user spending to $44.3 million in April. This corresponds to an increase of 90 percent from March and 25.3 percent year-over-year.
