Fortnite YouTube livestream attracts 1.1 million viewers
Fortnite has been racking up some more record-breaking figures on its way towards global dominance. The hugely successful battle royale title from Epic Games has already been pushing ahead of PUBG’s popularity and now the game has added another achievement to its growing list of accomplishments. The head of YouTube gaming, Ryan Wyatt, tweeted this latest statistic pertaining to Fortnite's incredible success:
How big is @FortniteGame on YouTube? Fortnite holds the record for the most videos related to a video game uploaded in a single month EVER. Yesterday, the Battle Royale tournament had over 42M live views, and set a record for biggest single live gaming stream @ 1.1M concurrent.
The live gaming stream was held by YouTuber Rubén Doblas Gundersen (elrubiusOMG), who currently has over 28.3 million subscribers to his channel. His video for the special Fortnite tournament has amassed nearly 16 million views at the time of writing. It looks like it might take a lot more than just new map content for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to stay abreast with Fortnite’s meteoric growth.
