Fornite Is Already The Second Highest Grossing Game On iOS

Fortnite on mobile has only started releasing invites to early access, but it's already a huge success. Along with topping the App Store's chart as the top free game, Fortnite has already hit the number two spot for the top grossing games on Apple products. Candy Crush Saga still clings to the top overall spot, but Fortnite has surpassed games like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Pokémon Go on its way up the ladder.

According to Apple's iTunes chart, the battle royale behemoth is the fourth-highest grossing app throughout the entire App Store, only eclipsed by Netflix, Pandora, and Candy Crush Saga.

Fortnite's popularity continues to grow as the game makes it way onto more and more platforms, prompting Epic Games to announce Party Royale, a celebrity-focused event that will take place in Los Angeles during E3.

Hitman, The Division Alumni Come Together To Create New Studio Sharkmob

Fredrik Rundqvist, a producer on The Division, has broken away from Ubisoft Massive to form his own studio with other notable talent including developers who worked on Hitman. The company is called Sharkmob and is working on a multiplayer iteration on a "cult classic" game but wouldn't go into further detail.

"We're not really interested in making a more traditional single-player type of game," Rundqvist told Gameindustry.biz. "What we play privately, the kind of games we love, are very social, very competitive, always multiplayer. The more the merrier."
