Fortnite helped make Epic $3 billion in profit

Fortnite is a free-to-play game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS, and it has been immensely successful in markets such as the United States even if its presence barely registers here in India.

Epic Games have been hard at work seemingly nonstop since Fortnite Battle Royale came out back in September 2017, and new rough estimates suggest that the hard work paid off big time as the company seemingly crossed into billions in profit.

The hottest - and according to some critics the most addictive - video game in the world is raking in billions. Once again, this is Epic Games showing how attentive they are to their player base and how willing they are to listen.

Captain Marvel: Disney reportedly spills cosmic beans on Jude Law's 'mystery' character
The Oscar-nominated actor then went on to detail his character's relationship with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel . She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander.

For a while now, purchasers of the Xbox One S Fortnite Eon Bundle have been complaining that the bundle had deceptive/misleading marketing to make it seem like it would include the Save the World mode when it actually didn't. Items like skins, pickaxes, and dance emotes are available daily in the game's Item Shop for V-Bucks, which need to be bought with real-world money.

One Reddit user raised an issue on the Xbox One subreddit that the bundle only contained a download code for the already free Battle Royale mode, despite the packaging advertising the "full game" of "Fortnite".

All of these different factors obviously contributed to Epic's reported monetary success in 2018.
