Court documents reveal nearly 50% of Fortnite’s revenue is on PlayStation

Fortnite PS5 PlayStation 5 1

No wonder Sony continues to pour money into Epic Games: Court documents reveal that 46.8% of total Fortnite revenue between March 2018 and July 2020 was generated by PlayStation 4. That’s significantly more than the 27 , 5% provided by Xbox One and 7% spent via iOS. The remaining 18% is divided between PC, Android and Nintendo Switch.

The data has come to light amid an ongoing legal battle between Apple and Epic Games, as the developer fights for a better share of revenue from purchases accrued through the App Store. The irony here is that Sony makes up 30% on every V-Buck sold, but maybe the maker of Unreal Engine doesn’t want to rock the boat too much on that front. With iOS contributing less than 10% of his overall revenue, he’s probably convinced he can better withstand the consequences of his actions.

None of this will come as a surprise to those who follow Sony’s finances, of course. Microtransactions purchased through the PS Store are arguably the main revenue driver for the organization, surpassing both hardware and software sales. With the PS4 having the largest global install base of any major console, it’s only natural that its ecosystem generates significant sums for third parties.
