Epic Games has overestimated the revenues it could have made from Fortnite exports in 2019 by ben 154 million dollars, according to new documents filed in Epic Games’ lawsuit against Apple.
The trial was filed in the District Court of the Northern District of California, in Oakland. Among the documents presented by Epic, one outlined the revenues that the Fortnite developer made from 2018 to 2019.
That document outlined how Epic failed to meet its planned revenue goal of 4.59 billion dollars. Instead, it earned 4.2 billion. Always many, for heaven’s sake, but less than expected.
The discrepancy, the document underlines, is the result of the overestimation of how much money he could have made from Fortnite exports in 2019. The year in which the competitive scene has substantially consolidated.
It has not been clarified how Epic Games could have made that sum, whether with sponsors or partnerships. In emails sent out as evidence, Epic employees suggested that the company would be discussing one at the time potential partnership with the current great enemy Apple come “main sponsor” della Fortnite World Cup.
The Cupertino company, according to the insiders at Epic, could have “given a little more influence”. In the end, no partnership was concluded and the World Cup did not have major sponsors and it is perhaps from there that part of the lost revenue can be traced back.
