Fortnite mobile makes $15 million on iOS in less than a month
Fortnite mobile is not even available on Android, but it already made $15 million in less than a month since its release in the App Store. Although the amount may seem impressive, it's not at all surprising considering the game raked in $1.5 million in the first four days.

According to the data provided by Sensor Tower, Fortnite daily revenue increased exponentially over the course of the month. After Epic Games lifted the invite requirement last week, the player expenditure increased by almost 200% (about three times increase), versus $620,000 average across all previous days.

Furthermore, Fortnite has been downloaded 11 million times since launch and remains the number one app in more than 20 countries for iPhone downloads, including the United States where it leapfrogged titles like Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans.

An Android version of Fortnite is already in the works, but a timeframe for its release hasn't been announced yet. Although the game will continue to make a lot of month on iOS, it remains to be seen how well it will perform after its release in the Google Play Store.

Making everyone start off as a female obviously paid off.

Lol. Exactly the first thing I looked up before playing. I sat there on the character screen for a few minutes trying to find character customization
