Business news Fortnite: How much did the NFL skins make? Epic Games responds!
As you probably already know, Epic Games is currently waging an unprecedented battle against Apple in court, which, on our side, allows us to get our hands on a lot of previously confidential information. After the revenue generated by Fortnite during its first years of service, the price of the Borderlands 3 exclusive, or the cost of weekly free games, the house of Unreal Engine 5 today unveils how much the skins have brought in. NFL, the partnership with the National Football League.
In November 2018, Fortnite, the goose that laid the golden eggs of Epic Games had partnered with the NFL to be able to offer players skins in the colors of their favorite teams. This association between the giant of the video game industry and the giant of the sports world fell well, since, a few weeks later, that is to say on February 3, 2019, the 52nd edition of the Super Bowl opened its doors. Obviously, this crossover has paid off! As a brand new document revealed during the ongoing Apple-Epic lawsuit points out, Fortnite sold 3.3 million NFL skins between November and December 2018, which roughly grossed over $ 50 million (approximately 41.2 million euros) to the video game publisher and the National Football League.
As a reminder, this temporary event offered players a total of 32 different NFL outfits to allow players to support their favorite team. However, it’s important to note that each skin cost around 1,500 V-Bucks (which is roughly $ 15). With such success, therefore, it is not surprising to see that Epic Games and the National Football League have repeated the operation in 2020. Unfortunately, no figures for this new season have been revealed.
