Fortnite exceeds the most important record of popularity
Fortnite continues to be a very popular game and does not indicate that it will slow down, and the latest record of popularity is proof in this direction.
Fortnite enjoys a new record of popularity and one of the causes of this new peak is South Korean players. During this week, several challenges have been launched that only South Korean players can access. That made many gamers go to the computer halls.
Sung Chul Park, from Epic Games , has announced the growing popularity of the game. Thus, this time, Fortnite managed to gather not less than 8.3 million gamers who played the title simultaneously.
If you do not know how to contextualize this figure, the following information may help. Fortnite had another record of popularity in February, when 3.4 million players were on servers at the same time. That’s exactly what caused them infrastructure problems for Epic Games. They seem to have made serious investments in servers, since this time there have been no such situations.
Even more impressive is the figure now if you look in November 2017. At that time, Fortnite barely boasts a total of 7 million players.
Epic Games, behind the Unreal Engine graphics engine and Fortnite creator , has received $ 1.25 billion in funding from more than one investor, and this has led the company’s value to reach nearly 15 billion dollars.
Among the company’s top investors are Tencent Holdings and Walt Disney. Epic Games was valued at $ 4.5 billion in May this year, and in 2012 it was only $ 660 million when the Tencent Chinese bought 48% of the company’s shares.
