Fortnite players have already spent a lot of money on the iOS version of the game. App data tracker SensorTower calculates that Fortnite Mobile has made in excess of $1.5 million in less than a week.
Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Mobile.
That’s a huge amount of money to make in any timeframe – let alone in just 72 hours – but still doesn’t tell the whole story. It’s worth remembering that Fortnite Mobile is currently only available on iOS, with Android support set to follow some time in the future. The mobile version of the game is also not universally available, as players have to be invited to the game by Epic in order to gain access.
Fortnite’s is not the largest mobile release in terms of microtransactions – Pokemon Go and Clash Royale both made more than $4.5 million in their first four days on iOS. Those games included purchases that impacted on gameplay, however, while Fortnite’s are purely cosmetic.
