Fortnite: Battle Royale beats PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in October

Fortnite early access

It looks like Fortnite: Battle Royale is getting out of control. Or not, really. In fact, it's growing so big that it is now a serious threat to that other HUGE battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

According to SuperData, Fortnite: Battle Royale has grown larger in October than PUBG, across PC and console. This means that it had a bigger MAU (Monthly Average User) count than Bluehole's game. However, being free-to-play (at least the battle royale part), Fortnite is far from racking in the same amount of cash as PUBG, since this game sells for $30.

The big challenge for Epic Games is to turn those users into spenders, bringing in some significant revenue to make up for the fact that the battle royale mode is free (and the full Fortnite game will also be free in 2018).

Epic Games is also working on plenty of changes to Fortnite, including improving the shooting model, the Duos and Squads system, and the team killing issues, among other things. You can read it all here.
