Think the Fortnite craze is wearing off? Think again. In an interview, Epic Games Korea said that Fortnite had 8.3 Million Concurrent players worldwide after launching in South Korea. For reference, the entire Steam service peaks at about 14 million concurrent users during prime time, and it's not growing nearly as quickly as Fortnite. Yep. You heard us: 8.3 million people playing Fortnite simultaneously. VG247 has verified the numbers with a spokesperson from Epic Games, twice. This is a meteoric rise in numbers considering that Fortnite previously hit a peak of 3.4 million concurrent players in February which caused major service disruptions. It will be interesting to see how Battle Royale goes down in South Korea, given that South Korean players often dominate the esports scene.
