Epic Games’ Invitation-Only Game Fortnite Has Already Grossed $1.5 Million in In-App Purchases

Epic Games’ Fortnite has already earned over $1.5 million in worldwide in-app purchases. The game is still in an invitation-only limited release format, so this is an impressive amount.

Epic Games' Invitation-Only Game Fortnite Has Already Grossed $1.5 Million in In-App Purchases

AppleInsider:

Sensor Tower, a data analytics firm specializing in the mobile app marketplace, revealed the Fortnitecalculations in blog post on Monday

According to the report, $1 million of Epic’s total estimated earnings came in the first three days after in-app purchases were activated. The performance puts Fortnite well ahead of similar battle royale style games Knives Out and Rules of Survival, which earned approximately $57,000 and $39,000, respectively, when they debuted. 

A different report, from Apptopia, notes the game is sitting in the no. 1 overall App Store spot in 89 markets. Fortnite is the second-highest grossing game in the U.S. behind Candy Crush.

Fortnite has earned $1.5 millon in in-app purchases, despite being available for download only on an invite-only basis, and the fact that Fortnite’s digital goods are limited to cosmetic buys, which doesn’t offer any type of functional enhancements.

Player buy in-app items with V-Bucks, which are purchased using real money. The V-Bucks are then redeemed for in-game items. V-Bucks packs range in price from $9.99 for 1,000 currency units to $99.99 for 10,000 units. The more you buy, the more additional bonus currency you receive.

Fortnite for iOS debuted last Thursday, as an invitation-only event. Interested iOS device users can sign up for an invitation, here.
