Edison Trends refers to its sample of "anonymized and aggregated e-receipts from millions of consumers in the United States" for its data, comparing Fortnite's big 52% sales drop against PUBG which has only dropped by just 2% in comparison, while Apex Legends remains calm, for now.

Another set of data from Edison Trends shows what percentage of players who made a purchase in Apex Legends, Fortnite, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and PUBG in June 2019, did so again in July 2019. These numbers show that Apex Legends is by far the most popular with 62% of gamers continuing to spend real money on the game, while 49% of Fortnite players and just 38% of PUBG players did.

The data also showed that real-money spending on Fortnite was riding a huge 110% average per month from November 2017 through to May 2018, but has been in a steady decline since. Fortnite's best money was December 2018 with 20% more revenue across the holiday season, beating the previous high of July 2018.
