Fortnite was unstoppable at one point but everything that goes up must come down, and the up was leading right up into December and now that down is in January and it all revolves around Fortnite's revenues being down by gigantic numbers.


According to the latest report from SuperData on the top grossing titles across the world, Fortnite lost the top spot on consoles to FIFA 19 and had Super Smash Bros. Ultimate nipping on its heels. SuperData reports that Fortnite revenue on all platforms combined declined by a huge 48% month-over-month, while noting that "sales are still up significantly year-over-year".

SuperData adds: "This comes after a peak month in December and points to an increasingly lumpy revenue profile heading into 2019". Looking at the numbers a little more, we see that Fortnite is #5 on the PC, losing out to Dungeon Fighter Online, League of Legends, Fantasy Westward Journey Online II, and CrossFire. Fortnite comes in at #5 while PUBG kicks off at #6, and then continues with World of Warcraft West, World of Tanks, Sims 4, and then DOTA 2.
