The game has made billions - but is it coming to its end?

Epic Games’ Fortnite Revenue Down Nearly 50% Since December

You’ve probably heard that Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends, is ‘the new Fortnite’ but it looks like Fortnite‘s been dropping out of favour for a while now.

According to SuperData [via VG247] Epic Games’ eye-wateringly popular game has suffered a 48% decrease in revenue across all of the platforms it’s available on since December 2018.

The sudden drop comes after a very successful December, which is usually to be expected, but the launch of Apex Legends spells nothing but bad news for Epic Games.

With over 25 million downloads in its first week of release, Apex already has a shockingly huge fanbase despite being just a few weeks old.

Over on Twitter there’s lots of Fortnite players who are now selling their accounts as they’re moving over to Apex, having lost interest in the former.

(Epic Games doesn’t condone the sale or purchase of accounts as it violates its terms of service. If you’re buying an account, please be aware you’re violating the rules).

The exact number of players who’ve left Fortnite since the release of Apex Legends is unknown, but if social media is anything to go by, it looks like Epic Games might be feeling the pinch even more next month…
