Documents concerning the ongoing legal battle between the two parties apple with epic Revealed PlayStation in reality Fort nightThe largest platform.
Court documents that have been disclosed before the legal disputes show that from March 2018 to July 2020, PlayStation 4 generated 46.8% of Fortnite’s total revenue, almost half of the total revenue from games (thanks to The Verge).
In contrast, the Xbox One only ranked second with a high price of 27.5%, which shows that Sony’s previous generation platform did indeed win praise for players (and money) during the heyday of Fortnite.
In 2019, the game made a staggering $1.8 billion for Epic-knowing that a large part of it comes from PlayStation, which gives us an idea of why Epic and Sony have become so friendly in recent months.
Then, iOS’s revenue is very low, of which only 7% of its revenue comes from Apple, which will be a very important figure in the legal battle between Apple and Epic.
Since Fortnite withdrew from the App Store because Epic tried to bypass the 30% platform fee charged by Apple, this number may be much lower in recent months.
Recently, we have seen Apple try to get Valve and Epic embedded in a messy public legal conflict.
The entire legal battle boils down to Epic’s insistence that Apple has a monopoly on smartphone distribution and that the company is engaged in unfair business practices on the iOS platform (by charging unreasonable rates to developers who earn income through App Store distribution).
