Since its meteoric rise to popularity in 2018, Fortnite has reportedly generated over $5 billion USD in revenues for parent company, Epic Games. In a recent court battle with Apple, documents were revealed to the public regarding the game’s overall revenues. In the first two years, Fortnite raked in more than $9 billion USD for Epic in 2018 and 2019.

Though the documents did not break down just how much Epic profited from Fortnite, the company did see a rise in profit of over $5.5 billion in the two-year period. Reports also indicated that the company predicts almost $3.6 billion USD in revenue for 2020. Though Epic Games themselves did not provide the financial statements, its CEO Tim Sweeny’s recently alluded to that the company made much more, roughly $5.1 billion USD.

The revenue of Fortnite evidently outshone any other business under Epic Games at the time. Other games under the Epic umbrella brought in $108 million USD in revenued in those two years, while Epic’s own engine only raked in $221 million over the same time span. Epic’s Game Store was launched in 2018 and between 2018 and 2019, brought in $235 million USD.

In case you missed it, a signed Michael Jordan NBA-All Star Game Patch card is set to fetch $2.5 million USD at auction.
