The popular battle royale video game Fortnite has reportedly made a lot of money in the early years since it became quite famous.
Media outlet The Verge revealed that the game made a lot of money after its popularity in 2018. The document they got after it was made public as part of Epic Game’s lawsuit with Apple showed that the game made more than $ 9 billion in total revenues in 2018 and 2019.
Analyst Daniel Ahmad has broken down Epic Games revenue from 2018 to 2020:
- 2018: $ 5.7 billion
- 2019: $ 4.2 billion
- 2020: $ 5.1 billion
Ahmad then gave a percentage of what the game contributed to that revenue. In 2018 this was 97 percent, compared to 88 percent in 2019.
Other games made just $ 108 million in revenue from 2018 to 2019, while Epic’s engine made $ 221 million in the same years. The digital store has raised $ 235 million in the same time frame.
All in all, Fortnite is Epic Games’ biggest earner.
