Fortnite Battle Royale boasts 10 million players in two weeks

Fortnite Battle Royale

Here's a warning, in case you didn't figure it out already: the next year will bring a boatload of Battle Royale games. If you thought Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, H1Z1 and Fortnite Battle Royale will be left alone to enjoy their success, you're wrong. Copycats will come in spades – SOS: The Ultimate Escape is one of the most interesting prospects.

This is great for those who can't get enough of shooting other people in The Hunger Games fashion (which, as you should also know, was a clone of a successful Japanese movie released in 2000 called… Battle Royale).

Now that we got the history lesson out of the way (and the prediction stuff as well), it's time to share the Fortnite Battle Royale news. Epic Games is frequently sharing the player numbers, and after the seven million players from a week ago, now it's time for an even higher count.

In just two weeks, over 10 million players tried Fortnite Battle Royale. This equates to over 44 million hours of playtime. It's a lot, and the infographic below shows some other statistics that are less meaningful. There's even a Rhianna mention, but we'll let you know how they made the connection.

Meanwhile, PUBG developer Bluehole is still crying over Fortnite Battle Royale's “similarities” or whatever, blowing their noses to millions of one hundred-dollar bills and cursing life.
