Fortnite has Over 3.7 Million Players, Over 500000 Concurrent”

Fortnite Battle Royale's numbers are an accumulation of players across North America, Europe, and Oceania, and presumably a combination of PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players. However on the same weekend it achieved 525,000 concurrent players, it also attracted 3.7m daily active users.

There's no love lost between PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fornite Battle Royale right now, as the former accuses the latter of blatantly copying it and the latter simply shrugs and tries to catch as many players as possible. This weekend, Battlegrounds almost hit 2m concurrent players on Steam and it looks certain that that number will be hit, which felt like an unreal possibility just a few months ago.

By combining the building mechanics of Fortnite with the intense survival gameplay of "battle royale" games, Fortnite: Battle Royale has drawn a huge number of players looking to scratch that survival itch, with the game having crossed a big milestone since release. It's free, so there's nothing stopping you.

Several days ago, Epic Games confirmed that it banned "thousands" of cheaters in Fortnite's Battle Royale game mode, and that it has plans to roll out even more anti-cheat tools in the future. Of course, considering the fact that PUBG's sales recently hit 15 million, it looks as if Battle Royale in Fortnite isn't necessarily horning in on the Bluehole Studio's business. It's hard to say right now, but there's certainly a good chance of it happen, at least before PUBG launches on Xbox One later this year.
