"Fortnite Battle Royale" is still the most popular video game running. Epic Games has done a great job releasing constant updates for the video game, and it has gotten even more popular over the last few months. The game was released in September 2018, and while many believed that it reached its peak in February 2018, the fact is that it's still going strong and still breaking numerous records.

The popular video game keeps gaining millions of new players on a monthly basis. It's free and available on every major platform, including mobile devices, which has been a major factor in its success.

The latest data reveals that Epic Games' battle royale game now has over 200 million players. Furthermore, this number keeps increasing and we can expect it to hit 300 million in 2019.

Popularity has increased by over 60 percent

On June 12, 2018, Epic Games had revealed that "Fortnite Battle Royale" had 125 million players. Since then, the video game developer has released the game on Nintendo Switch as well as on many Android phones. While many players have stopped playing "Fortnite," the game has attracted many new players, which contributed to its record-breaking number of concurrent players.

Last month, it was announced that "Fortnite Battle Royale" broke the record for most concurrent players in gaming history.

With 8.3 million players playing at the same time, Epic Games' video game has reached the number one spot of all-time in this metric.

According to the latest report, the game has surpassed the 200 million figure in late November. It has managed to attract over 75 million new players in five and a half month, which is a 60-percent increase.

With season 7 around the corner, it won't be surprising if millions of new players join the Fortnite hype and start playing this amazing game. Considering that the new season could bring some things players have never seen before, we can expect some season 1 players to return to it as well.

Fortnite remains unfazed by AAA games

The last few months have been very exciting for gamers. Many new video games have come out, including "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4," "Red Dead Redemption," and "Fallout 76." Even though the first game on the list has a battle royale mode, which was supposed to affect the popularity of "Fortnite Battle Royale," nothing has happened.

"Fortnite" remains on the top, in total players, concurrent players, and even on major streaming platforms. There is no doubt that the game will lose its popularity at one point, but it doesn't seem that it will happen anytime soon.
