Epic Games hasn’t even rolled out Fortnite for all users, yet the game continues to break records worldwide. The co-op survival game has broken another record and raked in a record amount in a very short time.

Fortnite rakes in $1.5 million with in-app purchases
The survival co-op by Epic Games is busting the App Store charts thanks to the insane hype surrounding it.
Microtransactions by Fortnite players have fetched Epic Games a whopping $1.5 million in just three days!
Although the game is free-to-play for all players, it does offer upgrades in the form of in-app purchases.
Players can purchase the in-game currency with their money, which can be spent on skins, weapon upgrades, accessing powerful characters, etc.
Here’s how the game stacks up against the Knives Out and Rules of Survival.
Even with such a figure, Fortnite is nowhere near the revenue that games like Pokemon Go and Clash Royale generated.
For the uninitiated, Pokemon Go made $4.9 million whereas Clash Royale made 4.6 million in the first days of their release on the App Store.
However, that might be a negative side-effect of Fortnite’s invite-based system, which inherently blocks a lot of users from downloading the game.
This, of course, is bound to change in the future and the game will generate even more revenue.
Epic Games will definitely continue milking the franchise for millions. Judging by its popularity, it won’t take long for Epic to quash the invite-based download system.
For those of you who are still waiting for an invite, I suggest waiting for a full-blown App Store release.
You can also contribute to this record collection by installing the game on your device. If you want to play Fortnite on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad, be sure to follow this tutorial.
