Simply in case you required a pointer that Fortnite is an international behemoth that will probably outlive all of us, brand-new information exposes that gamers all around the world have put a cumulative playtime of 10.4 million years into the Epic-developed fight royale. That’s roughly 50 times longer than people (as we understand them) have actually existed on this planet, which is … a sobering fact.

This helpful little after-dinner truth comes thanks to a brand-new report published by UK merchant VIDEO GAME, which chose to go into the top ten most-played games around the world. Overall, gamers have actually invested 19.2 million years cumulatively playing the 10 games listed – although Fortnite takes initially place by some range.

In fact, the 2nd most-played video game on the planet does not even come close to matching the might of Fortnite. World Of Warcraft – when the most popular game on the face of the planet – takes silver with 5.7 million years. It deserves keeping in mind that Fortnite came out some 13 years after World Of Warcraft, and boasts nearly two times the fantasy MMO’s playtime. Scary stuff.

Overwatch can be found in third with 1.5 million cumulative years under its best, while Grand Theft Automobile V trails a distant fourth location with just under 730k. I was expecting a dreadful lot more from Rockstar’s open-world crime sim, I need to say.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt reminds us all that single-player video games aren’t dead right now, can be found in 5th with 342k. CD Projekt RED’s timeless RPG is followed up by 2019’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and free-to-play fight royale Warzone. Clearly Activision has a long way to go if it wishes to take that Fortnite crown.

The last 4 video games in the top ten are Fallout 4 (115k), Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (90k), Rocket League (47k), and FIFA 20 (11k).

I make sure you will not be amazed to discover that Fortnite is likewise the most-streamed game on Twitch by a long old method. With 1289 million hours seen, it’s the game of the platform. That’s nearly double the 712 million made by League Of Legends, which takes the second most-viewed area.

What does this tell us, then? Mostly, that individuals who enjoy to harp on about Fortnite being a dead game are dead incorrect. I don’t play it myself, however you have to respect anything that can draw in those sort of numbers.
