Fortnite is generating more revenue than any other free game ever

A single video game (Fortnite: Battle Royale) brought in $318Min revenue during May!

This is the highest monthly revenue total ever for a video game.

What is Fortnite? Fortnite is a multi-player game that pits the user against 99 others in a battle for survival on an island where the last standing player wins.

The total revenue over 8 months is $1.2B from 125M players.

Mind blown: The game is free. All revenue is derived from add-ons such as clothing and dance moves.

FYI: This has not even been released for Android yet.

Fortnite has generated more revenue than several of Hollywood’s biggest movies last year including:
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
2) Spider-Man: Homecoming
3) Wonder Woman
4) Solo (2X+)
