The Battle Royale hit Fortnite still doesn’t seem to stop. Shortly after the launch of Season 4, the game can look forward to a new milestone. All the anticipation of the new season has led Fortnite players to dig a little deeper into their pockets, which is why Fortnite now has revenues of over $50 million on iOS.

It took 30 days to get the first $25 million on iOS, a figure that doubled in two weeks. The Sensor Tower website, which tracks player download and spending behavior on iOS and Android, made a big leap in activity with the launch of Season 4.

Player spending on 1 May was up 293 percent or almost four times that of the previous Tuesday. This rapid quadrupling of revenue comes from a large number of players who have spent about $10 in-game currency per person on Fortnite’s Season 4 Battle Pass, which unlocks additional content and includes other perks to meet certain challenges during the season.

Season 4 of Fortnite started on May 1st and brought among other things a new location as well as higher damage for the pickaxe and a graffiti feature.

A few days ago, Call of Duty publisher Activision admitted that the success of Battle Royale games like Fortnite would influence them and provide them with innovation and inspiration.
