Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS has only been out for a few days but it seems that the game has managed to top the charts in thirteen different countries. However it seems that in addition to topping the charts, it looks like the game has also managed to pull in a fair amount of money for Epic where according to SensorTower, it made $1.5 million over four days.
The report also claims that compared to other similar titles available on iOS, Fortnite well and truly dominated the competition. This is compared to titles like Knives Out and Rules of Survival which made $57,000 and $39,000 respectively in their first four days of release. However compared to games in general, Fortnite is still behind the likes of Pokemon GO which earned $4.9 million and Clash Royale which made $4.6 million.
That being said, it should be noted that Fortnite is still an invite-only game as Epic is working on ensuring that the servers are overloaded. This means that there are still a ton of iOS gamers who have yet to get in on the title which could potentially increase the amount of money the game is pulling in for Epic.
Also it isn’t available on Android yet which means that when it does become available, we wouldn’t be surprised if Fortnite on mobile became a huge money earner for Epic. Also Tencent’s PUBG was recently released on mobile so it will be interesting to see which game might fare better.
