Epic Games announced at GDC 2019, that 250 million people have registered to play this exciting fortress building battle royal shooter. That number is 50 million greater than previously recorded in December 2018.
It was also revealed to us by Epic that the number of people actually playing the game at the same time has risen as well ( From 10.7 million to 10.8 million ). As Fortnite is arguably one of the most influential and revitalizing games of its time, the hidden gem which came to be Apex Legends isn’t far behind. But despite the steep competition Epic was suddenly forced to endure, they still ride on and pursue their vison while bringing millions along with them.
“It’s a real game. It’s a shooter. It’s worldwide. It’s the first shooter with a huge female population. Somebody estimated it at roughly 35 percent, which is unprecedented–why isn’t it 50?–but it’s unprecedented for anything like this. It’s because it brings together players in a social experience.” Stated to Engadget by Epic boss Tim Sweeney.
As well as Fortnite news, it was announced at GDC 2019 that titles such as Heavy rain, Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human which are all PlayStation exclusive games, will be coming to the Epic Games store soon.
