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:
1) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
2) Spider-Man: Homecoming
3) Wonder Woman
4) Solo (2X+)
Last year, 258M unique viewers watched live streams of other people playing video games.
Still not impressed? That is a larger audience than every NFL regular season game combined!
191M watch at least once per month.
Viewers for eSports championship vs. Super Bowl:
1) Super Bowl (2018) — 106M
2) Extreme Masters (2017) — 46M
