ICYMI, Epic Games raised $50m for Ukraine from three days' worth of Fortnite profits. This is money raised from in-game sales beginning last Sunday, when Fortnite's new season went live and millions snapped up its new battle pass.
As Tom reported yesterday, Epic's efforts have not gone unnoticed, either. Ukraine's vice prime minister - who had previously called for PlayStation and Xbox to ditch sales in Russia - thanked the Fortnite developer via Twitter.

The studio has remained semi-functioning, despite the war in Ukraine, through external partners and a handful of remote-based staff. In a statement, Frogwares CEO Wael Amr said: "Put simply, we need to keep the studio alive and functioning to the best of our abilities now more than ever."
