Update, July 19: Fortnite has topped $1 billion in in-game revenue.
Fortnite has reportedly made over $1 billion in revenue since its launch last summer. A report from analysis firm Superdata suggests that the battle royale giant has already hit the ten-figure mark (from in-game purchases alone), less than a year after the game’s initial release.
Of course, the vast majority of that revenue will have come from Fortnite Battle Royale, rather than Save the World, but that makes the figure all the more impressive – Epic didn’t release the successful game mode until late September, meaning the bulk of that money will have been earned in just ten months.

It is, of course, no secret that Fortnite earns Epic an awful lot of money. In May alone, Fortnite made more than $318 million, a slight step up from the $296 million it made in April. Assuming it made a similar amount of money in June, it would already be pushing a healthy $900 million in just three months, meaning the total revenue could be well clear of one billion by the end of July.
Fortnite Season 5 began last week, bringing with it a new map, lots of new Fortnite skins, and a brand new Battle Pass. The latter in particular will undoubtedly help Epic’s sales over the summer, so expect that revenue figure to keep on rising for a while.
