Fortnite Sets Monthly F2P Sales Record

The addition of a free-to-play battle royale mode to Fortnite has turned it into a record-breaking moneymaker ever in the free-to-play space, reports Recode based on SuperData Research (thanks Slashdot via Ant. Battle royale mode has taken in over $1.2 billion in cosmetic in-game purchases since launching. This includes $318.3M in May 2018, obliterating the previous record for monthly revenue set by Lineage M, which took in $223.6M in July of last year. Further analysis notes the game's revenue is steadily increasing, compared to the declines suffered by Pokemon GO after a spectacular launch. They do note, however, that the pace of this growth is slowing:
May revenue rose just 7.6 percent, down from 32 percent in April, marking the slowest revenue growth month for the game. Most of that growth came from consoles, while iOS and PC revenue were flat. However, when Fortnite is finally released on Android this summer, growth could pick up again.

Not sure why anyone in their right mind would spend waste $20 on some lousy skin.

But hey, thank you for giving me an awesome game to play for absolutely nothing. Hopefully all other companies follow suit shortly.
