Fortnite is now the largest free-to-play console game of all time in terms of revenue generated and monthly active users.
It is the fifth largest on PC behind the likes of League of Legends, Korean shooter Crossfire, and Dungeon Fighter Online.
That’s according to research firm Superdata’s latest monthly report, which has the battle royale sensation’s revenue up a staggering 73 percent from February to US$223 million across all platforms.
No doubt the game’s mobile release contributed heavily to this upsurge, alongside the game’s Season 3 Battle Pass, and a number of endorsements from heavy weight celebrities, including Drake and many pro athletes.
Meanwhile, a 13-year-old Londoner has been signed to Team Secret’s new Fortnite squad.
As ESPN reports, Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson is much younger than his 21, 20 and 17-year-old teammates.
"I actually had no idea he was 13 until the team told me," Team Secret CEO John Yao said.
"Because when we looked at some of the videos and we looked at their game play, it was not apparent. What immediately stood out to me was how mature he was, and he sounded just like one of the other guys."
Yao is putting together a Fortnite pro squad even though the game doesn’t yet have an established pro scene.
"Our guess is that Epic Games [publisher of Fortnite] is also going to announce something and get behind the esports scene," he said.
"And so, before everybody else jumps in and all the good players get signed up, we wanted to make a pre-emptive strike."
That does leave one looming question though: when Epic launches a Fortnite professional league, will they allow minors to participate?
The Overwatch League, for example, doesn’t allow players under the age of 18 to compete.
