On May 1st, player spending increased by an incredible 293 percent.
Epic Games’ Fortnite Mobile is an interesting case study, pushing the boundaries of games possibly on mobiles. It’s also striking while Fortnite: Battle Royale is at its hottest and catering to all manner of players on the go.
Having released on March 15th, Fortnite Mobile has earned a whopping $50 million in just two months. Sensor Tower’s analysis also revealed that player spending had increased by 293 percent thanks mostly to the Season 4 Battle Pass which retailed for $10.
Interestingly enough, the site noted that in its initial seven days, PUBG Mobile (the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) only managed to earn 20 percent of the Fortnite’s first week revenue. That’s even with a larger global player base on iOS. Make no mistake – Epic Games is raking in the moolah with Fortnite.
In other news, Fortnite: Battle Royale recently received a limited time mode that involves Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet from Avengers: Infinity War. It’s pretty cool, even if Thanos had to be nerfed hours after it went live.
