Fortnite scores $25 million take in first 30 days; guided missile is removed
That performance continues. During the first two weeks of April, Fortnite grossed $9.5 million placing it second among iOS apps in that time period. The game trailed only Netflix and the $12.6 million that the video streamer took in. While the mobile version of the game is available for iOS only, developer Epic Games says that an Android version is coming. And that has led Sensor Tower to forecast that Fortnite could gross $500 million in 2018 alone.
Epic Games also announced today that it has taken the guided missiles out of the game indefinitely. In patch v3.5, released last week, a bug sneaked into the game and broke the animation of the powerful weapon. Part of the patch was designed to soften the impact of the missiles. According to the developer, it has received criticism about the "fairness and strength of the weapon." So Epic says that it is taking out the guided missiles from Fortnite while it decides what to do with them.
