Fortnite Mobile App Already Number 1 on iTunes
Epic Games’ Fortnite may have just gone live for iOS mobile devices, but the battle royale shooter has quickly become a huge hit. Though it is still in beta phase, this is somewhat of an expected outcome since the title has already made a considerable impact on consoles and PC. What wasn’t expected was how quickly the port rose to the top, as the Fortnite mobile app has topped the iTunes App Store within only a few days of being launched.
As it currently stands on the US iTunes charts, Fortnite is in the number 1 spot in the “Free Apps” category, overtaking the massively popular March Madness and The Sims Mobile. Further insight from Sensor Tower (via VentureBeat), sees the game as the 2nd most downloaded iOS game in the United States across all categories. Other countries have been getting in on the Fortnite mobile app action as well, with the game reaching number 3 in Canada, and the 5th spot in Great Britain.
Fortnite’s takeover of the mobile space is not outside the norm, as the game recently outdid the concurrent player numbers of competing title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. While Fortnite has undeniable momentum, PUBG still presents some pretty strong competition, which may only grow stronger as their own mobile port officially makes its way to North America.
