To say that Fortnite is a popular game would be a massive understatement. The title has become an absolute phenomenon, taking on a life of its own. So it’s certainly not surprising to see that it has achieved another major milestone. Fortnite now boasts more than 200 million players across the globe. This is a massive achievement when you compare this figure to what it was back in March this year.

Some of you may be well aware that Fortnite had 40 million players in March 2018. It has more than doubled its base in under eight months. Few titles can lay claim to growing at such a massive pace.

Epic Games’ popular battle royale title now has 200 million registered players across the globe. It’s a 60 percent surge compared to the 125 million players it had in June this year. This is an impressive achievement no matter which way you look at it.

One of the primary reasons of its popularity is the fact that the game is free-to-play. Moreover, it has become a cultural phenomenon in its own right, and that has only added to the hype surrounding this title.

Epic Games is now working hard to maintain the monumental growth that this game has seen. It’s coming out with limited-time modes to retain players’ interest and is also heavily investing in esports tournaments to maintain the momentum.
