Fortnite sees its impact on social media steadily dwindle by 31% in the last 6 months

What's the saddest emote?

There's no doubt that Fortnite is still a huge game, but as time rolls on, people move away to other games. The more competition, the more people will stray. The report shared below gives a bit more insight into how things have been going for the #1 Battle Royale game below.

Launched in July 2017, Fortnite has quickly transformed into the world’s biggest free multiplayer online video game. But since a year, its success seems to ebb – at least on social media.

The product, launched by Epic Games, is under heavy attack by similar shooting games, such as PUBG (aka PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS), published in 2018 by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean gaming company Bluehole, and more recently Apex Legends, published early 2019 by Electronic Arts.

Fortnite ranks still first with 88.2 million mentions and impressive 1.3 billion engagements in the last 12 months, vs 31.1 million mentions and 404.5 million engagements for its rival PUBG. Apex Legends grossed 2.1 million mentions and 19.4 million engagements, thus trying to emerge but not yet comparable to the leading players.
