Fortnite mobile makes $1 million in-app purchases in 3 days

When is Fortnite mobile coming out on Android?

According to statistical website Sensor Tower, estimates are that, in its first three days, players spent somewhere in the region of a staggering $1.5 million on in-game purchases. It's likely that those revenue numbers will grow significantly when the game is opened up to Android players as well.

Ben Lewis-Evans, a user experience lead researcher at Epic Games who works on Fortnite, told Polygon that the team rolled out Fortnite with friendly fire on. "If you have feedback regarding this, please let us know".

Sensor Tower, a data analytics firm specializing in the mobile app marketplace, revealed the Fortnite calculations in blog post on Monday.

The app launched at the tail end of last week but topped the iOS charts in 47 countries less than 24 hours after launch and ranking within the top 10 in 58 countries.

Not bad, especially when you consider it has been released as "invite only" and not released to the wider public. One can actually complete this game in a shorter span of time and therefore, can be enjoyed thoroughly.

The developer explained that they will soon release Fortnite Battle Royale on Google Android and Apple iOS, and players on smartphones will also be able to play with those on the PC and consoles. This is no mean feat considering that the game is invite only at the moment.

In order to encourage speedier play, Epic Games has also tweaked the item spawn rates. The Fortnite announcement only states that it is a "limited-time" mode.
