Fortnite Is Already The Second Highest Grossing Game On iOS

Fortnite on mobile has only started releasing invites to early access, but it's already a huge success. Along with topping the App Store's chart as the top free game, Fortnite has already hit the number two spot for the top grossing games on Apple products. Candy Crush Saga still clings to the top overall spot, but Fortnite has surpassed games like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Pokémon Go on its way up the ladder.

According to Apple's iTunes chart, the battle royale behemoth is the fourth-highest grossing app throughout the entire App Store, only eclipsed by Netflix, Pandora, and Candy Crush Saga.

Fortnite's popularity continues to grow as the game makes it way onto more and more platforms, prompting Epic Games to announce Party Royale, a celebrity-focused event that will take place in Los Angeles during E3.


Our Take
So ... when is Fortnite coming to Switch? In all seriousness, Fortnite has been a huge hit on every platform that it touches. We can't say how long Fortnite will retain this level of popularity, but we're hoping it'll last long enough for Microsoft and Sony to start playing nicely together.
