Fortnite Has Reportedly Made over $1 Billion from In-Game Purchases

Funko lands another huge partner and will produce ‘Fortnite’ toys and collectibles

The Battle Bus will also be getting a birthday makeover for the event, which lasts until August 7th.

The video game and software development firm was already using AWS but has now chosen the world's number one cloud infrastructure firm for the entirety of its infrastructure.

Fortnite has successfully earned over $1 billion across all platforms.

The popular game has been made live again by developer Epic - but this week there's a bit of a shake-up.

Mark Rein, Vice President of Epic Games added: "Jazwares have been so awesome to work with, and from the start have shown that they really understand the Fortnite universe and what makes it unique". Ironically, its initial release into early access with Save the World was largely ignored, and it wasn't until Battle Royale was released that the game became an worldwide phenomenon.

One of the new songs, "I Still Have Faith in You", will be heard for the first time in a TV special in December. With so many projects, we wouldn't be surprised if that $305 million swells even larger in the near future.

"Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale we've watched the passion for community competition grow and can't wait to empower you to battle with the best". For anyone bemoaning the increasing reliance of games on pushing in-game purchases, this is why we can't have nice things!

While the game is free-to-play, huge sales of cosmetic items (only purchasable through real money) and advertising helped by celebrity endorsement, helped Epic achieve this milestone.

Furthermore, the fact that most of the Android user-base comprises of users with budget phones (i.e. phones with low specifications) is bound to take the fun away from the game.
