Fortnite makes $100 million on iOS in just 90 days

With smartphone gaming offering serious revenue streams of late, popular battle royale game Fortnite has made headlines by generating over $100 million in revenue within just 90 days of its launch on Apple's iOS App Store. But the game insists that players pay for "V-Bucks" in the game.

This is the last thing Epic Games need at the minute, as they are now battling in a lawsuit with PUBG, but they shouldn't feel too hard on themselves.

"Fortnite" is free-to-play, but players can make in-game purchases of cosmetic items and "battle passes", which offer exclusive in-game challenges which can unlock rewards. Players are spending money on costumes, outfits, and emotes that don't give anyone an advantage in multiplayer - but they do make them look cool, which is important for people who spend a ton of time in that game. When compared to other mobile juggernauts of the past two years like Honor of Kings/Arena of Valor, Clash Royale, and Knives Out, Fortnite is right there with them.

They took to Reddit to share their findings, where many have been quick to announce the image from EuBestCityEu was nothing but fake, due to the fact that some parts of the image were blurred out, but Epic Games saw the mistake and admitted it was real. Fortnite still outpaced Clash Royale during April, May, and June, though. The game has exploded in popularity since it first arrived, likely aided by the free cost of entry and bolstered by the popularity of Battle Royale predecessor, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Fortnite was launched on March 15.
