Fortnite has crossed the $1 billion revenue mark

Fortnite Battle Royale is played by more than 125 million players

For those who need a reminder, The Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks and you can buy a bundle of 1,000 V-Bucks for roughly £8, or earn the V-Bucks in-game through various activities. In-game purchases include player skins, new maps and custom vehicles etc. While it's not hard to learn, the competitive multiplayer incentivizes players to continuously refine their skills and purchase in-game content to get a leg-up.

"Battle Royale", the free video game mode that took the world by storm last Fall, is a billion dollar business.

That's definitely a good move on the part of developers Epic, since other titles where in-app purchases make a competitive difference have often been ruined by this game dynamic. Games like PUBG, H1Z1 and DayZ may have started the trend, but Fortnite's caused it to explode into the mainstream.

Fortnite is the largest game on the market right now, pulling in a huge $318 million in the month of May alone and now making Epic Games over $1 billion since its launch in late-2017. Despite the game being free, Epic is raking in monumental amounts of cash from the microtransactions within the cartoon shooter.

Though the figures, apparel, and more have not been shown, fans of Funko's merchandise know distorted proportions and cute aesthetics are in store. And the team is celebrating it in the most Fortnite way possible, with cosmetics and challenges.

Friday Fortnite built a following by bringing together Fortnite gamers and streamers from around the world to compete in fast-paced matches to rack up the most "kills" and to stay alive to win prize money. Fortnite is increasing profits of many gaming companies.
