Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is proving popular, it seems. Developer Epic Games announced on Twitter that the game reached 3.7 million players on Sunday, October 8. At its peak that day, Battle Royale had 525,000 concurrent users, Epic added.


Those figures cover North America, Europe, and Oceania, and are presumably the sum of players across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The numbers are huge, and even more evidence that people are excited about the Battle Royale experience, wherever they can find it.

Fortnite Battle Royale's player figures are massive and impressive, but they pale in comparison to the game it is often compared to, PUBG. That game had an absolutely astonishing 1.93 million peak concurrent players today, according to public Steam data.

Battle Royale continues to grow. It reached 1 million players on launch day in September. As for the base game, Epic announced in July that 500,000 people bought one of the game's paid tiers just days after it launched.
