Fortnite: Battle Royale passes $1 billion revenue milestone


Our matchmaking is built on something called the Matchmaking Service (MMS), which is responsible for facilitating the "handshake" between players looking to join a match and an available dedicated server open to host that match.

Fortnite: Battle Royale was first introduced as a free-to-play, early access mode of the original "Fortnite" title, a $60 zombie survival game that creators at Epic Games had been developing for more than five years. But in that time, it has turned into a phenomenon both in terms of its popularity as a game as well as in its cultural impact. The report also notes the added attention from celebrities and gamers and the easy learning curve for new players.

Announced by Nasdaq, the Fortnite collection will feature over ten different product lines, including Pop! figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl figures, 5 Star figures, keychains, apparel and more.

Epic Games may soon have even more opportunities to make money off in-game Fortnite purchases too, as Fortnite may soon be getting vehicle skins and players are likely about to get the opportunity to gift in-game items to one another. This week's Summer Skirmish will go on today and tomorrow. "And that thing is the ability to thank the driver of the battle bus, he or she is truly a great person and they provide us a great service, I think it is time we can truly appreciate thair service, don't you agree?"
