Fortnite now has 125 million total players

fortnite peak concurrent players

Update, June 13: Fortnite developer Epic Games has updated us on the battle royale’s total player count.

Epic Games announced in a Fortnite blog post that “in less than a year, Fortnite has grown to 125 million players.” This is the total player count across all platforms, and has likely received a substantial boon from the game’s release on mobile.

On June 5, 2018 an earnings call from publishing giant Tencent also gave us an update on Fortnite’s monthly active user base, saying there were over 40 million players logging into play every month.

Fortnite's by far the biggest, but is it the best battle royale?

Just to clarify, that information (which comes from Marketwatch) confirms that more than 40 million people are logging in to play Fortnite every single month. To put that into some perspective, that's about half of what League of Legends was reaching around its peak, and more than Grand Theft Auto V. It's also quite a lot more than Fortnite's closest competitor seems to be managing, as PUBG's player count has halved since January.

Anyway, as you scrabble for a Victory Royale alongside millions of players, it might be worth checking out the Fortnite week 6 challenges - well, it will if you want help collecting those battle stars. This week, you're vandalising posters, opening chests in loot lakes, and racing for supply drops.

Just a small thing but in regards to your statement that "Fortnite is also not yet officially available in China", I live in Shanghai and there is perfect access to the Epic Games Engine and Fortnite. There are also specific servers for the Asia region.

They could do much more of this game by adding every kind of special modes or even establishing Custom Matchmaking to a whole new level with all sorts of game modes, as a player, i am really excited about the possibillities this game can bring up in future and i cant wait for them to start improvising :D

On June 5, 2018 an earnings call from publishing giant Tencent also gave us an update on Fortnite’s monthly active user base, saying there were over 90 million players logging into play every month. Having over 18 million with in the first few days.

Fortnite has been dominating platforms such as PC and PS4 having around 40 million active users just on PS4 20% more than X-BOX and the switch. However Sony have been in press over blocking epic account from joining other platforms via cross play.

The first thing we need to get out of the way is that cross-play on the PlayStation 4 is a solved issue, at least in terms of technology.

There is no technical limitation, or challenge that needs to be solved, that’s preventing cross-play on the PS4 — outside of Sony’s refusal to let it happen. We know that the teams involved with some of the biggest games in the world want it to happen. Fans are certainly asking for it. The other consoles are offering it.
