Previously, a report from Nielsen’s Superdata claimed the game has made $2.4 billion in 2018. This is the first time we’re seeing revenue data for Fortnite for an entire year. Superdata claims that Fortnite is the highest selling game of 2018 in addition to the highest earning free-to-play title, eclipsing the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Though keep in mind that Epic Games itself does not release any revenue details regarding any of its games, let alone Fortnite.
It is also important to note that Fortnite is available on every platform — Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This also ensures it has a higher chance of monetisation versus other titles. This is lower than the alleged $3 billion in profit alone reported earlier in the month.
“Free-to-play titles amassed 80 percent of digital games revenue in 2018 but premium games still performed well in Western markets,” the report reads. “Asian mobile games helped the region earn 62 percent of global free-to-play revenue, while North America and Europe generated 80 percent of premium games revenue.”
