Fortnite players have reportedly spent more than $1 million in-game on Epic’s free-to-play but invitation-only title.
According to a report by Sensor Tower, the battle royale game has already grossed $1.5 million worldwide with $1 million coming within 72 hours. Despite still being invitation-only, the title has surged past rivals with NetEase’s Knives Out and Rules of Survival making $52k and £39k in their first four days respectively.

Sensor Tower’s report further shows that Fortnite has also managed to gross about one third as much as Pokemon GO and Clash Royale did within their first four days of availability on iOS, with $4.9 million and $4.6 million grossed respectively.
Fortnite also managed to hit the top of the UK iOS charts within 24-hours of launch and has gone on to top download charts in more than 40 other countries since.
Invitations started rolling out on March 15th for the iOS version of the game and more are set to find their way to interested players over the coming months. Epic Games also confirmed an invitation-to-play version will be making its way to Android although hopefuls will have to wait a few more months.
