Fortnite Mobile Grosses $25 Million USD in First 30 Days

The mobile version of Fortnite seems to be a massive success for Epic Games. It is currently the top gaming app on iOS and is one of the most profitable mobile apps, competing with Tinder and Netflix.


A new report from analytics firm SensorTower says that Fornite mobile has earned $25 million USD this month alone. Keep in mind that is only on iOS devices, when it launches on Android the researcher estimates that the game could earn over $500 million USD this year.

Average daily player spending in the game has topped $1 million USD worldwide on the Apple App store. The game is only second to Netflix in terms of the amount U.S. iPhone users have spent in it so far this month, which beats out both Tinder and Pandora.

Fortnite mobile was available in an invite-only event in mid-March, after that it was made available to all iOS users April 2. The game is free to play, but gamers continue to spend money on in-game currency (V-bucks) to unlock skins, emotes, and other cosmetic items.
