Fortnite has its biggest month ever in terms of total players

Whether you like it or not, Fortnite continues to flourish. In a recent blog post from Epic, the company reveals that Aug. 2018 was its biggest month ever in terms of total players.

Beginning in October, we’re opening up inclusive competition, where everybody can play and compete. To make that possible we’ve had to harden and scale our systems and infrastructure. For example, August was Fortnite’s biggest month yet, with 78.3 million of you showing up to play. This exposed weak points and allowed us to make targeted improvements to critical systems, such as stats and servers.

I know I dropped in on a few games and added to that total. How many of you are still kicking around in the game?

I do still play, but not on Switch. Kind of surprised it had the highest player count when August didn't really have anything special happen.

78.3 million? That is incredible.

Haha, all those who didn’t pay for Switch Online went to play Fortnite since it’s free-to-play. ;—D

I still play! Too much. It’s taking away time from my backlog
