Following the success of Fortnite since it’s original launch, Fortnite: Battle Royale debuted on iOS last March and as expected, was also well received by iPhone and iPad users to the degree that it has been able to generate $2 MDD per day. Today, a new report shows Epic has reached a new archivement in the App Store.
Today, a report from Apptopia noted that Fortnite: Battle Royale has already made 100 million downloads on the App Store.
This feat took merely 138 days, making it the third fastest growing title ever. According to the site, Epic’s Battle Royale was well received by users of Apple’s devices, and although it took the days it took to register the million downloads to place it under Super Mario Run and Pokémon GO, it has made steady progress.
As a comparison and to give you some understanding how huge this is, Apptopia presented some interesting facts in comparison:
Fortnite clears 100 million downloads in less than 5 months just from iOS
Super Mario Run did this in less than half the time but had serious ad money behind it
Fortnite users are playing about 21.6 minutes per session, longer than Pokemon GO
At the same time, the report states that in game hours alone corresponding to the May and June sessions, Fortnite: Battle Royale users on iOS have spent 2.7 billion hours playing and as mentioned above, the average session lasts 21.6 minutes, surpassing that of Pokémon GO, which records 14.8 minutes. Finally, Apptopia pointed out that in terms of revenue generated by purchases in the game, the Epic Battle Royale exceeded $160 MDD and is set to reach $500 MDD in April 2019.
