Epic Games, the makers of Fortnite which is arguably the most popular video game of 2018, have reportedly made $3 billion in 2018.
2018 has been a great year for games especially battle royales with PUBG and Fortnite fans periodically debating on which game is better. TechCrunch reports that Epic Games made a $3 billion in 2018, with a huge chunk of it comes on the back of the success of Fortnite Battle Royale. This has grown the company’s valuation to $15 billion.
The game was first released in September 2017, but it became exteextre popular in 2018, as Epic Games brought the title to Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch.
Though Epic Games chose to side-step the Google Play Store in favor of distributing the game on Android, thereby making its earnings on Android hard to figure out, tracking firm Sensor Tower estimates that iOS players spent $1.23 million daily on the title in November.
I prefer PUBG to Fortnite though.
