Why is Fortnite so successful?
Save the World mode reached over a million players in August 2017, just before the release of Battle Royale. Riding the wave started by H1Z1 and then PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale became a significant financial success for Epic Games, leading them to separate the teams between Save the World and Battle Royale to better support both modes. Two weeks after release, more than 10 million players had played the mode, and by June 2018, just after the release of the Nintendo Switch, the number of players reached 125 million. Fortnite Battle Royale revenue in the first half of 2018 had been estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars per month.
Fortnite Battle Royale has also become an online cultural phenomenon, with several celebrities claiming to play the game, and athletes using Fortnite celebrations as victory celebrations. In March 2018, a notable streaming event, with streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins playing Fortnite Battle Royale alongside Drake, Travis Scott, Kim Dotcom and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pokimane with rapper Designer broke Twitch viewership records to date and led to Epic hosting a Fortnite Battle Royale pro-am with 50 pairs of streamers and pro gamers paired with celebrities at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June 2018. Epic Games is working on developing eSports competitions organized around Fortnite Battle Royale, including the Fortnite World Cup tournament in 2019.
