"Fortnite" Has Earned Over $1 Billion

The competitive scene for Epic Games' successful battle royale title of Fortnite is now in full swing with multiple individuals and organizations organizing and hosting tournaments worth tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

For some perspective, this means that Fortnite has now made more money than several of last year's highest worldwide-grossing blockbuster films, including "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", Marvel Studios' "Spider-Man: Homecoming", and "Wonder Woman;" and more than double the gross worldwide earnings of the latest Star Wars flick, "Solo".

In just a few days (24th July, to be exact), global phenomenon Fortnite is celebrating its first birthday.

Also of note, SuperData announced that the Battle Royale genre is the most popular video game genre in the world right now (of no surprise to anyone) with an estimated 700 million hours of related content watched online, only expected to grow throughout 2019.
