Players have been anticipating a meteor strike in Fortnite: Battle Royale for some time now, and it's finally starting to happen. One Redditor posted a video of a meteor -- technically a meteorite once it hits the ground -- striking and knocking out a section of fence. The damage is hardly significant, but this could be the harbinger of what's to come, with the current season ending on April 30. It's guessed that once the new season hits, things will change dramatically, including a possible swarm of meteors destroying Tilted Towers.
In the opposite of apocalyptic news, SuperData reports that Fortnite brought in $223 million across all platforms -- PC, console, and mobile -- during the month of March, calling it "largest free-to-play console game of all time" (emphasis theirs). It's #1 on their console list, naturally, and #5 on PC, surpassing World of Warcraft, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and World of Tanks.
How much is $233 million? Well, a lot, obviously. But by comparison, NCSoft's last financial statement had the company bringing in about $494 million in Q4 of 2017. That's for the entire company, for all its games, over a three-month period. Fortnite, a single game, did about half that in one month.
