By the time it takes you to read this sentence, Epic Games has already made around $ 250 thanks to Fortnite. The king of battle royale is a free to play and grinds over 3000 euros per minute, thanks to a huge user base willing to invest real money to win items or customizations.

Within this ranking, we find Fortnite on the throne, followed by the fighting game Dungeon Fighter Online (which has a particular following in Asia) with about 2,800 euros per minute: more than a giant like League of Legends, which apparently must be satisfied with the third square (2,600 euros per minute). Interestingly, these are three free-to-play titles: this could be more of a clue to what lies ahead in the future of the gaming industry. And let’s not forget that Epic Games has made a best-seller like GTA V available via its Store available for free download (albeit for a limited period of time), and recently also Civilization VI.
