Fortnite Currently has Almost 250 million registered players, Epic Games announced on Wednesday at GDC 2019.
During its summit, the game also hit 10.8 million parallel players, the business revealed. These numbers are massive to say the least, particularly in the event that you take into account the fact that Fortnite launched only around 18 weeks ago. Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play battle royale game in which up to 100 players are paradropped in an island and also the last person or group standing wins.
Fortnite approaching 250 million players was reported by Engadget by GDC 2019. The game had struck 200 million gamers back in November 2018, and it was only at 125 million players at June 2018.
Fortnite’s 10.8 million concurrent player figure, just above the 10.7 million markers it hit in February, is also a noteworthy achievement. Just to set it in context, India’s Hotstar had struck 11.7 million concurrentsabout the IPL 2018 closing live flow. Fortnite’s concurrent player statistics are right up there with global sports live streaming records, one of the reasons why Netflix sees Fortnite as a biger rival than HBO.
Fortnite’s capacity to attract casual players is famous as a large part of its participant base contains people who would not consider themselves hardcore gamers. Its diversity numbers will also be impressive. The Engadget report mentioned above also estimates Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney stating that around 35% of Fortnite’s participant base is feminine — considerably larger than what most other shooting games visit.
Fortnite had grossed over $500 million on iOS alone in 2018, even though a recent report mentioned that Fortnite’s revenue declined 48 percent month on month. Fortnite year 8, which launched lately, has a pirate theme and a lot of fun in-game material for its players.
Battle royale for a genre has taken off hugely, with games such as Battlefield V Firestorm, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout, and Red Dead Online linking the celebration.
