Fortnite: Battle Royale has reached 10 million gamers since its release two weeks ago, after releasing in Early Access earlier this year - without its Battle Royale game mode.




Epic Games has said that an estimated 3.7 million gamers were playing Fortnite: Battle Royale on Sunday, with a concurrent base of 525,000 gamers. This doesn't compare to the near 2 million concurrent players in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, but it's damn good for Epic.


Epic Games released a bunch of details on Fortnite: Battle Royale in an infographic, with 44 million hours played, 58 million traps found, and a huge 292 million people jumping from the Battle Bus. There are lots of other random details included, with 6.9 million umbrellas earned and 797 million walls/stairs/floors/ceilings built. Impressive.
