Despite the competition from Apex Legends, Fortnite remains a highly popular game. The proof is the latest data shared by Epic Games, which confirm a new record of players simultaneously.
Epic Games told Variety that it registered 7.6 million players simultaneously on 16 February. This is an impressive number considering that there was no special event on that date.
7.6 million players simultaneously is a new record for out-of-gameplay as the in-game Marshmello concert attracted 10.7 million players at the same time.
For the record, the record number of Apex Legends players is currently 2 million. For a game that was released this month, it’s an unbelievable result, but it’s still far from Fortnite.
