Fortnite and Xbox Raise $144 Million for Ukraine Relief

Since announcing its decision to commit 100% of profits to Ukraine just 16 days ago, Epic Games has now revealed that over $144 million USD has been raised for humanitarian relief in the country. Xbox joined Epic in this effort by committing 100% of their net proceeds for Fortnite to Ukraine.

The money raised comes from every purchase made in Fortnite since March 20th, including Battle Pass sales, V-Buck purchases and Crew Pack memberships. The announcement gives us a rare insight into the profits made by Epic Games at the launch of a new Fortnite Season.

The funds have been split between UNICEF, World Food Programme, UNHCR, World Central Kitchen and Direct Relief.
