The Red Knight to Make Epic Games Over $20 Million

Epic Games are raking in the money.

Yesterday, Epic Games announced the return on the Red Knight in Fortnite shop. With the announcement came a flurry of hype that seen the Red Knight be the number one trending words on twitter. 

It's safe to say that the Red Knight in Fortnite is arguably one of the most much wanted after items, close to that of the Skull Trooper, and it's expected the skin is going to make Epic Games a whole butt load of money. In April alone, Epic Games made an astonishing $296 million from in-game purchases and that number has been climbing on a money basis. This means, of average, Epic Games make just under $10 million per day and this is without the release of much wanted after skins like the Red Knight.

It's safe to say that today will be a big money earner for Epic Games, with fan-made surveys on Twitter, Reddit and Facebook revealing that over 90% of players that participated in the surverys, will be buying the Red Knight.

Now, we're unsure on the exact numbers on how much Epic Games will make, but if they make $10 million on a 'bad day', they could make well over $20 million when the Red Knight releases today.

How much do you think Epic Games will make with the release of the Red Knight today in Fortnite Battle Royale?
