Epic Games has revealed that its blockbuster free-to-play battle royale title Fortnite has more than 350 million players.
As revealed on Twitter, the game has attracted 150 million players since November 2018, when the firm revealed that its hit boasted had 200 million players. Epic also revealed that its users have spent a total of 3.2 billion hours in-game, meaning that users have played the game for an average of nine hours each.
There had been some concerns that Fortnite wasn't performing that well anymore during 2019. Epic provided regular updates about how its game was doing during 2017 and 2018, but after the aforementioned 200 million figure, we didn't hear anything, which was sure to raise some eyebrows.
At the start of 2020, research firm SuperData reported that Fortnite had made more than $1.8 billion during 2019 alone. In February, the company claimed that Fortnite spending had hit its lowest point since November 2017 in January 2020, with Epic criticising SuperData's methodology.
