A new report from analyst firm Superdata has given us some insight into the craze of Battle Royale games. Epic’s Fornite is now estimated to have earned more the $1 billion in revenue since it launched last year. And from the looks of it, it does not seem to be slowing down. In May alone the game made $304 million on in-game microtransactions, all of which we remind you are cosmetic. This is a 4% increase over the $296 million figure in April. Since introducing the Battle Royale game mode in September of last year profits have skyrocketed, just revenue from May and April account for more than half of the $1 billion being reported.
With Epic basically printing money we can assume the team working on Fortnite has only been growing, especially since Battle Royale has been added to the game. You can also bet that Epic will be working on a successor to the game, if not now probably when the revenue starts to decline. Fortnite has now entered its fifth season and does not seem to be slowing down in terms or user-base and revenue.
