Fortnite is a cooperative Sandbox Survival game from Epic Games for PC, PS4 as well as Xbox One. It had just entered the Early Access stage on July 25th and had already sold over 500 thousand copies.
Darren Sugg, Fortnite’s creative director, shared the number via Twitter:
Absolutely humbled by the response to this week’s @FortniteGame launch. 500k+ digital pre-order sales and just getting started! Thank YOU.

The portal PCGamesN reached out to the studio and found out that it was the number for the sale, and does not reflect the current state of things.
“This number is for full sales that happened before yesterday, so doesn’t actually reflect the full number of sales… or take into account retail!”
