While the war of superiority continues between PUBG and Fortnite, with both sides of fans slinging mud at the other game. There’s a plethora of reasons that each game is better than the other, but there’s one fact you can’t ignore and that’s cold, hard cash.

The mobile version of Fortnite may only have half the downloads of PUBG (though it is only on iOS, unlike PUBG), but with half the users, it’s generated five times the gross revenue of PUBG according to Bloomberg, racking in a whopping $92 million over an 11 week period. Though PUBG still pulled in an impressive $19 million, it pales in comparison to it’s competitors success.

What’s interesting to take note of is that arguably the world’s largest gaming companies, Tencent, has a stake in both games. Analytics show that Fortnite‘s astronomical earnings mostly come from the US, with a ludicrous 60 percent of its gross revenue coming from the land of the free. Comparatively, PUBG generates a higher percentage of its revenue in Asia, with Japan and South Korea contributing 17 and 11 percent of gross revenue.

While both games have their own merits and almost everyone has an opinion on them, it’s fair to say they’ve both had considerable effect on the gaming market, spawning arguably more carbon copies than Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Which do you prefer, PUBG and it’s realism or Fortnite and it’s catroony style and polish? Let us know in the comments below
