Fortnite reaches 20 million players with help of its battle royal mode
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds won’t launch on Xbox One until next month, but players aren’t waiting to get into some battle royal action on consoles and PC. Epic’s Fortnite, which has a free last-player-standing mode, has surpassed 20 million total players, according to the developer. This is not earning any money directly for Epic, but it is raising the profile of the Fortnite brand and its paid defensive shooter mode.
Fortnite is available on PC as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and that 20 million player counts everyone across those platforms who has ever downloaded and booted it up.
