Epic later confirmed this figure, in English, to VG24/7. If anyone thought Fortnite was dying lately because of the decrease in media coverage, you'd be wrong.

Earlier this week, Fortnite announced a partnership with the National Football League which allows the game to use team skins in gameplay. At that time, it caused some serious server problems for Epic - it seems that the developer's invested in some backup tech since then. PC Bang, a huge internet cafe chain in South Korea can now be found in Paradise Palms.

Crazy, crazy stuff. We're not sure on the total number of players across Fortnite ever, but it must be north of 100 million. It means that at some times, especially if Fortnite continues to grow, that there may be more people on Earth playing Fortnite than there are people playing games on Steam.


Fortnite has recently seen a massive event with the explosion of the purple cube in a one-time event.

We all know how popular Fortnite is but this bit of news still made us spew out a bit of morning coffee.
