Fortnite Mobile has been a massive success for Epic Games, and a terror for schools across the country. The latest port has only been available on iOS since April 1st. The smartphone version alone has grossed more than $25 million in its first 30 days and the average daily player is spending more in Fortnite than other applications; Everyone must be jumping on those season passes.
As the chart below shows, iPhone consumers on the U.S. App Store have spent nearly $1 million more in Fortnite than Tinder in the first two weeks of April, and about 75 percent as much as they’ve spent in Netflix. The game has also grossed more than some of the store’s other top-earning apps month-to-date, including Pandora, YouTube, and Hulu, not to mention making more than 1.5 times as much as Candy Crush Saga during the same period.
I can’t wait for the Android comparisons.It’s going to be an interesting couple of months, Fortnite continues to grow and available across multiple platforms. Personally, we’re looking forward to an Android launch. Have you spent any money on the iOS version of Fortnite, let us know in the comments below or over on our Facebook page.
