Fortnite's one-year anniversary to be celebrated with in-game events

Fortnite's one-year anniversary to be celebrated with in-game events

As more studios jump on the trend, those amounts are expected to increase across platforms again in 2019 (more than double the 2018 revenue for Premium Consoles) increasing revenues twelve-fold within two years' time. SuperData predicts that the battle royale market revenue will increase 625% by next year when games like Call of Duty: Black Op 4 drop (COD has implemented battle royale style games into their newest title).

The challenges include playing 14 matches, deal 1,000 damage to your opponents, and dance in front of 10 different birthday cakes that will pop up throughout the map.

A limited-time event celebrating the big day will kick off on July 24, giving players the opportunity to earn special cosmetic items by completing birthday-themed challenges and quests.

Since Fortnite has skyrocketed the battle royale genre to worldwide popularity, several other video game series have sought to emulate their success, and they're right to do so.


"Battle Royale", a multi-player shooter game, has attracted millions of players around the world.

Epic had to spend a lot of time testing this solution in cycles that took several hours to complete each time, but it says that testing ensured Playground mode - or any of Fortnite's various modes, for that matter - would be able to handle a rush of players in the future.

Battle Royale games are expected to make at least $2 billion in revenue in 2018 - about seven times the amount they made previous year.

The data shows that Fortnite saw its largest spike in players early this year, and at the time, many speculated that the free game was simply experiencing a fleeting moment of hype that would quickly dissipate.
