Fortnite Season 5 bags $2 million for first 10 days
New Delhi : Fortnite developed by Epic Games is making a bang in the video gaming market. Each series introduces new set of battle pass, skins, attractive toys for you and your partner friend to play with. This season 5 with the theme of "Worlds Collide" appears to give royal sensation to its players. A report from Sensor Tower confirms that Fortnite Season 5 on iOS has earned an average of $2 million a day for the first 10 days of its release. To add more, the new season has earned revenue 12 percent higher than the preceding 10 days, and 19 percent higher than the $1.7 million players spent per day on average in the first 10 days of Season 4.
"Fortnite daily revenue reached its all-time high on mobile on July 13, when players spent approximately $3 million in the game worldwide. This just edged out the game’s previous best day, May 1, which was when Season 4 began and it grossed about $1.9 million from players across the globe," writes Sensor Tower's Head of Mobile Insights Randy Nelson.
"To date, players have spent more than $150 million in the mobile version of Fortnite, which surpassed $100 million total spending one month ago. Developer Epic Games has not officially announced a release date for the highly anticipated Android version of Fortnite, although it is still expected to arrive sometime this summer."
Now, the release date of Fortnite video game for Android on the way and Sensor Tower believe that the Epic Games could make $500 million (approximately Rs. 3,200 crore) by the end of the year.
"Epic Games has yet to divulge when Fortnite will launch on Google Play, but, should that happen by summer—and if the title is able to maintain its current hysteria-level popularity among gamers for a few more months—our estimates indicate the game could be poised to gross more than $500 million by the end of 2018 across both platforms combined," wrote Nelson at the time.
Earlier, Sensor Tower assumed that Fortnite could earn more that $3 million a day (roughly Rs. 19.50 crore) when it hits Android, "once the Android user base grows to a comparable size in relation to iOS".
According to SuperData research firm, Fortnite revenue on iOS and PC was "flat" in April as compared to that in May. Across all platforms, Fortnite made $318 million in May, a seven percent hike compared to April with a majority of the growth being on PS4 and Xbox One. May also marks the first time Fortnite crossed the $300 million mark in a single month.
