This means that Fortnite on iOS is now making more money than the likes of mobile champions like Candy Crush Saga, Clash of Clans, and Pokemon Go. Fortnite has made $6.4 million in the last week, crushing Candy Crush Saga and its $5.8 million haul for the week.

Epic Games had an invite-only system on Fortnite at first, but earlier this week it was taken away which saw daily revenue drive from $600,000 to a huge $1.8 million according to Sensor Tower. Their data also has Fortnite being downloaded around 11 million times on iOS alone.
