Fortnite Offering $8 Million In Big Esports Event

Recently, Epic Games announced that it will offer $100 million in prize pool money for Fortnite competitive tournaments in 2018 and 2019 with “Summer Skirmish” series, which is an eight-week run of events where people will compete for a share of $8 million in prize money.

The $100 million in prize money for Fortnite’s 2018-2019 competitive season is more than double the $38 million in total prize money that Valve’s Dota 2 paid out in 2017 across all of its tournaments, according to E-Sports Earnings (via CNBC).

Fortnite brings in more than $1 million every single day from its mobile version alone, according to SensorTower; Epic makes even more money from the console and PC editions. The game is free, but players can spend real money on cosmetics (which do not impact gameplay whatsoever).
