Fortnite’s popularity is not slowing down. The game had its biggest month ever in August when 78.3 million people played the popular battle royale game, Epic announced. That’s the highest single-month player figure for the game since it launched.
The massive figure led to some issues. With so many players logging in, “This exposed weak points and allowed us to make targeted improvements to critical systems, such as stats and servers,” Epic said.
While nearly 80 million players is absolutely a massive figure, Fortnite is free, so it’s theoretically available to everyone who has a console, PC, or mobile device. And more importantly, Epic did not say how much Fortnite brings in from its microtransactions.
In other Fortnite news, the game’s mysterious narrative continued this week as the Cube sank into Loot Lake. This is all some kind of tease for the upcoming Season 6, apparently.
Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, as well as mobile devices.
