Fortnite now has 200 million players

Epic's battle royale title Fortnite shows no sign of slowing down as the game hits 200m players.

That's according to Bloomberg, which reports that the battle royale behemoth has seen a 60 per cent increase in players since the last official count in June of this year. At that point, the title had 'just' 125m users.

Fortnite launched in July 2017 as a survival game - Save the World - with the battle royale portion of the title released a few months later in September.
