Are your kids like mine, addicted to Fortnite? Remember when it first came out and they were all excited to play it because it was a free game? Free to download, yes. However, as parents, we knew at some point they had to make money and according to Deadline, they made a ton of money!

"Fortnite" pulled in $2.4 billion last year, the most revenue of any game in history in single a year.  Remember that whole "Free to play" thing? HAHA! True, but not when you start buying all those season passes, character skins, and dances.  After "Fortnite", the free-to-play games that made the most money in 2018 were:

 

"Dungeon Fighter Online", $1.5 billion

"League of Legends", $1.4 billion

"Pokemon GO", $1.3 billion

"Crossfire", $1.3 billion
