It has been less than a year since Epic Games released Fortnite and since then it has been a major hit for the company. Epic has now provided the updated player figures for Fortnite and they’re very impressive. The developer has confirmed that Fortnite has over 125 million players around the world in less than a year after its launch. That is actually amazing.
Fortnite was launched in July of 2017 but Epic Games didn’t launch the battle royale mode at first. That arrived a few months later in September 2017. The last time Epic gave us figures for the game was back in January of this year when the company revealed that the game had been downloaded 45 million times. Epic’s investor Tencent also confirmed last week that more than 40 million people play Fortnite once a month.
It is a massive hit for all involved. Part of the reason that Fortnite has become so popular is the fact that it’s available on almost all major platforms. Plus it is also free to play as well. The Nintendo Switch is the only platform that was left out and this has been rectified since Fortnite is arriving on Nintendo Switch as well. This game just keeps surprising.
