This comes after a peak month in December and points to an increasingly lumpy revenue profile heading into 2019.”
It’s currently unclear what caused this dip in performance and how Epic Games can help avoid it again in the months to come.
But they weren’t the only ones to see a dip in January, with a big digital drop in spending found on multiple platforms.
“Worldwide digital game spending declined on Console, PC and Mobile in January,” the Super Data report adds.
“Consumers spent $8.4 billion on digital games across all platforms in January, down 6% year-over-year.
“Premium PC had the biggest drop off of any platform with a 29% decline. Meanwhile, console revenue also decreased by 3% even including a favourable comparison from Fortnite due to tepid performance from top Premium Console franchises such as Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, FIFA and Overwatch.”
One move Epic has made is by making it possible for Fortnite fans to unlock a free Season 8 Battle Pass fortnite v buck generator.
This seems like a sure way to witness another dip in Revenue for March but it might also re-enegage players too.
The start of a new season always sees a rise in interest, especially when it comes to new skins.
So if more players are playing so that they can unlock new Battle Pass skins, they may also head over to the Fortnite item Shop.
A new theme for Season 8 will mean fresh skins and unique outfits to pick up in the weeks to come.
