Epic Games announces that all of Fortnite's two-week revenue will go to humanitarian aid to Ukraine

Epic Games has announced that it will use all of its proceeds in Fortnite from March 20, 2022 to April 3, 2022 for humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. In addition, Fortnite has just started Chapter 3 Season 2 of the new season on March 20, 2022, so it will be an aid at the timing when a lot of profits can be expected.

Humanitarian aid to Ukraine


According to Epic Games, if you purchase an item in real currency in Fortnite between March 20, 2022 and April 3, 2022, the entire amount will be remitted to Ukraine. Items that can be purchased in real currency at Fortnite include the in-game currency V-Bucks, the monthly subscription service Fortnite Crew, the Gift Battle Pass, and the Visual Pack. It seems that all of these purchases will be used to support Ukraine. In addition to this, costume packs and V-Bucks purchased at retail stores will also be covered if redeemed in-game during the support period. However, even if you use the in-game currency V-Bucks, you will not be able to purchase using the actual currency, so no support will be incurred.

Epic Games will donate the proceeds of the period to four humanitarian organizations:

DIRECT RELIEF , the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) , the United Nations World Food Program (UNWFP) , and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees-UN High Commissioner for Refugees . Each organization is said to provide local emergency assistance, including health support, food, water purification, essentials, legal assistance and the provision of safe places.

In addition, Microsoft will provide net sales of Fortnite-related content purchased on the Microsoft Store between March 20, 2022 and April 3, 2022 as support. Fortnite is also distributed on PlayStation 4/5 and Nintendo Switch, but there is no information about these platforms.
