Fortnite’s Creative mode is more popular than ever, thanks to the launch of Creative 2.0, also known as UEFN. Players have been able to let their imagination run wild and create some truly unique experiences. With Epic Games carrying out changes to engagement payout, Fortnite creators are earning an unreal amount of money (no pun intended.)

Epic Games has made various adjustment to how Creative island designers are paid. The latest change has seen debut of a “time played” metric, with the purpose of rewarding creators for the time players spend on their islands. 

Fortnite Creative island designers are earning more than you may think

Recently, Epic Games shared an update on the Fortnite engagement payout program and it shows just how much money the top earners are making. Five players are projected to make over $10 million a year from Creative 2.0, with hundreds more making over $100,000.

The statistic are just a projection for now, since Creative 2.0 hasn’t been around for very long. Its worth noting that the figures provided by Epic Games are based on April 2023’s payout, multiplied by 12. With that being said, the numbers are much higher compared to those of the support-a-creator program.

Here are the top 10 most popular categories of games built with UEFN, so far:

  • Free For All
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Gun Game
  • Horror
  • Zombies
  • Lucky Block
  • Practice
  • Vehicles
  • Base Battle
  • Prop Hunt
