When a new Fortnite Season starts people always want to know how many people play Fortnite right now? It is a fair question after all seeing as Fortnite game has been big for ages. Can it keep it up? Will there be a time once people one day ask do people still play Fortnite? The recent iPhone issues certainly have not dented the game’s popularity and Travis Scott was rumored to have made around $20 million from his in-game live music event so there is got to be a lot of people playing.
How Many People Play Fortnite?
The Fortnite: Chapter 2 Season 5 Galactus event saw 15.3 millions players log on. That is a big jump from the recent 12.3 million concurrent players who joined into watch the Travis Scott event back in April. Also, in February 2019, there is an increase from the 10.8 million players who logged on for the in-game live Marshmello concert. So, we are able to say that there are still many people playing Fortnite.
One stat we have not seen updated for a while is the total player count. There is no a news talk about the total player right now. Until now, the number or registered accounts overall still stands at 250 million players in total, Since March 2019. That stats counts every registered account, active or not active. The fact that it has not been updated for a while so it might have gone down or up. But, it is a not really an accurate measure because there is probably a big percentage of people who logged in to see what the fuss was about and never game back. Another recorded statistic mentions that the highest number of players active in a month, that was 78.3 million, recorded in August 2018. Again, that is not all at once but that still many people actively playing
Now, we are going to give you a comparison. Apex Legends reached 70 million players in October 2019, while the original Battle Royale, Player unknown’s Battlegrounds, reach 400 million player peak in June 2018, and 3.24 million concurrent in January 2018. However currently has a peak monthly players count around 886,255 for April 2020.
