Fortnite now has 125 million players just one year after launch (Theverge)

I don’t even play Fortite but I understand the achievment.

Developer Epic Games announced today that Fortnite has grown to 125 million registered players in less than a year. The metric, confirmed in a blog post about the game’s $100 million e-sports competition, is the first updated player figures from Epic since the company confirmed the game had been downloaded 45 million times back in January. Just last week, Epic investor Tencent confirmed that 40 million people play the game at once a month. Fortnite came out in July 2017, and its battle royale game mode didn’t launch until September 2017.

It's amazing that it's gotten that many players. Pugb only has about 3mill from the last time I check. I dont hate pugb. But with the developers sueing fortnigth and the elitists bashing it. I'm glad to see that it's gotten that many players

The 125 million are unique players. So you would compare copies sold, which Pubg sold over 10 million. But it is hard to compare when one costs money & the other does not. But the sheer volume of Fortnite makes me believe they are the top dog free or not. Now if FT were “only” 50-100 million they would be more comparable. This is because in a F2P model only about 10-20% will be spending money on the game.

It's just ripping off a few other games, but the best works always do.
