Fortnite mobile players spent $1.5 million in the first 72 hours in-game

Expect a zillion Battle Royale titles headed pocket-wards

It has been less than a week since popular battle-royale title Fortnite made the transition to mobile devices, but already figures have sky-rocketed for the pocket shooter.

According to statistical website Sensor Tower, estimates are that, in its first three days, players spent somewhere in the region of a staggering $1.5 million on in-game purchases. Don’t forget that Fortnite mobile is currently only available on the iOS format, and is invite-only. Who knows how sizeable that figure would be if the game was currently live for everyone who wished to play it?

As Epic Games’ rolls out invites to more players, and they are eventually joined by their Android brethren, it seems likely that these incredible numbers will continue to grow.
