Fortnite brings in $1.8 billion in 2019 earnings despite a 25% drop

Fortnite may not have been as huge in 2019 as it was in 2018, but it was still king of the gaming world. The battle royale earned $1.8 billion last year, according to research published by SuperData.

Fortnite truly broke into the mainstream in 2018, which was accompanied by a monstrous revenue haul: $2.4 billion. While Fortnite suffered a drop in revenue in 2019, the digital games market saw a 3 percent increase overall, raking in almost $110 billion.

As SuperData put it, “gaming did not need new titles on the level of Fortnite or Red Dead Redemption 2 to continue expanding.”

Epic has created a virtual platform out of Fortnite that allows fans to create their own worlds without purchasing new content every week.
