Fortnite Hits 3.4 Million Concurrent Users On Same Weekend Of Server Outages


Epic tales of Epic Games' smash hit shooter Fortnite from GameSpot.

Quote:
Fortnite, the stylized shooter from Gears of War creator Epic Games, has reached a new player milestone. Over the weekend, on Super Bowl Sunday, the game hit a new record of 3.4 million concurrent players, Epic announced in a blog post this week.

By comparison, that's ahead of the 3 million peak concurrent players that PUBG reached in January. The big difference, however, is that Fortnite's concurrent figure almost certainly covers all platforms--PS4, Xbox One, and PC--while PUBG's was for PC alone.

Still, 3.4 million concurrent users is a huge number and it speaks to the ongoing popularity of Epic's game. The developer did not provide a breakdown of how that figure is divided between the paid Fortnite base game and the free-to-play Battle Royale mode, but it can be safely assumed that Battle Royale has the bulk of the players.

Fortnite's newest player milestone is all the more notable when you consider that the game ran into some serious and significant issues recently. In a frank blog post, Epic talked about how the "extreme" server load led to six different incidents on Saturday and Sunday, which in some instances included "total service disruptions" for the game.

LOL! You just did exactly what they're both known for: Overpromised and underdelivered.
