Fortnite's Mobile Release Earns $1 Million in Three Days

Fortnite's Mobile Release Earns $1 Million in Three Days

To get in the top 5, you need to dedicate at least 20-30 minutes in most instances, which isn't going to match up with the amount of time you've got to play when out and about with your mobile.That's where the brand new Blitz mode comes in.

The developer explained that they will soon release Fortnite Battle Royale on Google Android and Apple iOS, and players on smartphones will also be able to play with those on the PC and consoles.

Fortnite Battle Royale has recently made the leap onto mobile platforms. Now, the Epic Games installment can notch another tally mark in their "win" column.




The app launched at the tail end of last week but topped the iOS charts in 47 countries less than 24 hours after launch and ranking within the top 10 in 58 countries. According to their data, the game has raised more than $1.5 million worldwide until now, something really impressive if we take into account that the mobile version of Fortnite is only available on iOS devices.

This means just about third of the revenue that Pokemon Go has earned in its first four days, which equated to about $5 million - it's a lot of money from a lot of eager players who wanted to kit out their characters in one of the most popular battle royale games now out there. You have to patiently wait for Epic Games or another owner of the game to send you an invite in order to partake in the multiplayer fun, but even this didn't stop the game from becoming a viral phenomenon that could only be compared with Pokemon Go in more recent times. "We had theories about what could be impacted by [turning friendly fire] on and off", Lewis-Evans said, "but you can look at things like, 'Did people play more field games?" If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry, Epic will get round to you eventually over the coming months.
