The promise has been made and it appears to be being meticulously kept. Epic Games announce Officially, the revenue generated by Fortnite for two weeks, from March 20 to April 3, will go entirely to humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

Well, only a day has passed and the popular game has already managed to raise 36 million dollars, about 33 million euros. This information was revealed by Fortnite itself, on its official Twitter account:

As mentioned earlier, the amount will be donated to various humanitarian aid organizations working on Ukrainian soil and with refugees in the country, such as UNICEF, Direct Relief, the United Nations Refugee Agency and the World Food Program.

In addition to Epic Games, Microsoft has also joined the initiative, by donating the net revenue received from sales of Fortnite on the Xbox Microsoft Store, also during these two weeks.
