It was only in February that the game reached 3.4 million concurrent players and caused disruptions across Epic's servers, with the recent news of Fortnite reaching 8.3 million concurrent players coming from Epic Games Korea spokesperson Sung Chul Park.

Fortnite launched in South Korea this week which is why the news is coming from Korean media, with 8.3 million concurrent players a mind boggling amount of gamers playing the same game at once. Considering the game is on the PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and mobile operating systems with iOS and Android, it has huge legs to stretch in terms of reaching as many gamers as possible.
