When Fortnite first debuted in early 2017, it had already surpassed one million gamers by August of that year. As witnessed in the recent game streaming trend on sites such as Twitch and YouTube, the game has now become a global sensation that is appreciated by players of all ages. According to statistics, the game earned $1.8 billion in revenue through 2019, making it the highest-earning game of 2019. Though this figure is smaller than what Fortnite made in 2018 ($2.4 billion), it is about $200 million higher than the closest competitor, Nexon’s Dungeon Fighter Online.
