Fortnite, developed by the Epic Games Inc., continued its success for one more year with Epic’s all-consuming battle royale earning a total of $1.8 billion in 2019 reported SuperData’s year in review. It is not more than a number that set the record in its debut year, but no game other than Fortnite grossed as much in 2019.
Free-to-Play games are the top earners, accumulating 80% of the money spent on digital games in its account. Out of the total bagged, the majority is from the mobiles that grossed $64.4 billion over the year. Earnings on mobiles are followed by $29.6 billion by PC, and consoles netted $15.43 billion. Though it dropped on PC and Consoles, it rose by many billion on Mobiles.
