Tyler Blevins AKA Ninja has revealed he once made $5 million in a single month from the proceeds of his Fortnite Creator Code. Ninja revealed this during a recent gaming session that was captured by Dexerto.com.

"I think the most I've ever made in a month off the Creator Code was like five mil," Ninja said. "I'm not joking. It was funny, man. I actually talked sh** to someone the other day in a stream who was roasting my League of Legends gameplay, and I told him that I could buy his family tree. It was hilarious."

The Fortnite Creator Code program allows creators to earn 5% of the value of in-game purchases made when someone uses their designated code.

This is just the latest example of a big payday for Ninja that we're learning about. He was reportedly paid $50 million to join Mixer. Microsoft would eventually shut down Mixer, with Ninja getting his "full payment" upon leaving, according to reports.

In other news, streamer Ludwig recently topped Ninja's record for most Twitch subscribers after a month-long subathon.
