It's hard to believe the game has already been out for a year but on July 24th, Fortnite will be 1 year old. Pokemon Go earned $104 million in May, up 174% year-over-year and Sony's new sci-fi title Detroit: Become Human sold 291,000 digital copies at launch in May. The company is using the popularity of Fortnite and the game's strong community to get the attention of gamers.

Building was another factor that caused contestants to play it safe and Epic is considering ways to counter this strategy saying, "We're thinking carefully about how to address late-game building for long-term health of competitive play". It is now the most-streamed and most-watched game on Twitch. 10 points and a bonus of $10,000 were also up for grabs for players who were able to secure 20 or more eliminations in a match.

It's worth noting this anniversary is celebrating Fortnite's original release and mode.
