Epic And Xbox To Donate Fortnite Proceeds To Ukrainian Relief

Funds to support Direct Relief, UNICEF, the UN World Food Programme and the UNHCR

Fortnite giant Epic Games and platform holder Xbox are to donate all proceeds from the battle royale hit to causes aiding those affected by the war in Ukraine.

In a post on Twitter, Epic said that it would be giving away all of its proceeds to these causes between March 20th and April 3rd. That means for two weeks, money from one of the biggest games in the world will be going to a good cause.

Xbox joined in, saying that it would be doing the same. It’s likely that this translates to the 30 per cent revenue cut that the firm takes as part of its platform fee.

Causes set to benefit from this initiative are Direct Relief, UNICEF, the UN World Food Programme and the UNHCR, the UN’s refugee agency, per a post on Epic’s website

This is the latest measure that the games industry has taken to support those affected by the war. Most recently, developer Necrosoft launched a bundle on Itch.io that raised $6.4 million for charities set to help those impacted by the conflict.
