As revealed on Twitter, the game has attracted 150m players since November 2018, when the firm revealed that its hit boasted had 200m 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.
With that said, Epic did confirm that Fortnite’s active players, however many they might be, spent a whopping 3.2 billion hours in the game during the month of April. That number is certainly going to be skewed by power users that spend hundreds of hours playing the game per month (Twitch streamers, for example), but it’s still quite impressive.
It’ll be interesting to see how long Fortnite can retain its appeal, but for the time being, it’s clear that the game isn’t going anywhere anytime soon; for better or worse.
