Fortnite is one hottest sensations in the gaming world. Epic Games, the developers, have recently released the Battle Royale mode which seems to have captured everyone’s attention. Everyone, starting from celebrities to regular people, are constantly talking about the epic mode. However, it seems people aren’t happy with just playing it, they want to share the experience on YouTube as well.
Fortnite, the most uploaded game on YouTube in February
This week, YouTube decided to join the trend and keep people updated about Fortnite. As everyone expected, streamers didn’t wait and immediately went on to record their adventures while playing the new mode, Battle Royale. Then, they uploaded this content, and broke some records.
In February, Fortnite gathered the biggest number of uploaded streams on YouTube for a video game. During the previous month, it became the most downloaded video game. However, it seems that things remained successful, and the game broke even more records during the next month.
The fact that so many people uploaded gaming videos shows how successful that particular title was. Usually, professional streamers tend to pick diverse titles when making their videos. This means that not all the games they stream are extremely popular, but they should gather at least a minimum number of watchers.
Is this the highest Fortnite can get?
However, given the huge number of uploads, it means non-professional streamers filmed themselves while playing Fortnite. This is a great indicator of the game’s popularity, since almost anyone was eager to share their experiences from the game. Also, it seems live streams reached a peak as well.
Last weekend, YouTube hosted the Battle Royale event which gathered over 100 game creators. Overall, this live event gathered over 42 million views. People could choose the creator they wanted to watch, so one of them managed to gather about 1.1 million viewers. This colossal number applies only to a single stream, which is extremely impressive.
On a broader context, we cannot say what will become of these numbers. However, they perfectly show what a sensation Fortnite is at the moment. We cannot tell if there’s room for more, or this is the maximum the game could achieve.
