Fortnite Revenue Down Nearly 50% In January 2019

Via a monthly report by SuperData, Fortnite has seen a slight dip in revenue to ring in the new year with the game holding its place ahead of PUBG but behind the likes of League of Legends, Crossfire, Fantasy Westward Journey Online 2, and Dungeon Fighter Online.

SuperData goes further by saying:

Fortnite dips month-over-month after a strong end to the year. Fortnite revenue on all platforms combined declined 48% month-over-month in January, although sales are still up significantly year-over-year. This comes after a peak month in December and points to an increasingly lumpy revenue profile heading into 2019.

The February report will definitely be interesting to see with the new battle royale title Apex Legends hitting the scene at the beginning of the month and taking the internet by storm. Within the first 3 weeks of release, Apex has since been downloaded over 25 million times which would of course affect viewership on popular streaming sites such as Twitch.

As of writing, Apex is currently looking at around 172k viewers on Twitch vs 107k viewers watching Fortnite.

Fortnite is currently available on (inhales)PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Mobile(Android and iOS)
