How Many People Play Fortnite Player Count

Fortnite is one of the most popular video games ever, but what is the official Fortnite player count? We’ve got all the statistics you need, including 2021 and all-time numbers.

When Fortnite Battle Royale launched in September 2018, few could have imagined that it would dominate pop culture in the manner it has since then. From musicians like Marshmello and Ariana Grande, to athletes like LeBron James, Epic Game’s free-to-play title has dominated gaming for almost three years.

Of course, it’s not just the stars that have flocked to Fortnite. The game’s free-to-play status meant that anyone could download, jump in, and play with their friends, and millions of gamers around the world have done just that over the years.

How many people have actually played Fortnite though, and how many are actively playing in 2021. We’ve got all the information you need to appreciate the true smash hit Fortnite is.

Unfortunately, Epic Games don’t keep track of how many players are actively playing the game at any one moment. Thankfully, there are some statistics that we can use to estimate the game’s current player count.

Using PlayerCounter, we can see that there are anywhere from 6 – 12 million people playing Fortnite daily. This number increases on special occasions, like in-game events or new seasons, driving the number closer to 15 million players.

Now, Epic Games does not regularly provide live updates when it comes to how many people have played or are currently playing. Still, there are some benchmarks that the game has reached since 2018 that give the community an idea of how large the Fortnite player count currently is.

August of 2018 saw a Fortnite player count of 78,000,000, which is not surprising, as this was during the height of popularity during the game’s rise into stardom.

2019 saw a concurrent player count of 12,500,000 in the game, and 2020 saw a record-high number of people playing when 15,300,000 came together to experience the Galactus event.

2020 also saw Epic Games report that Fortnite had 350 million registered accounts. However, one player can create multiple accounts, so registered accounts do not exactly mean 350,000,000 players. A year later, it’s likely that number has increased, and could even be close to 400 million total accounts.

What does the Fortnite Gold Cube do?

The actual purpose of the Gold Cube is currently unknown. When the other purple squares began making their moves, it remained stationary but has since started to travel as well.

This more prestigious Cube will likely play a massive part in the end-of-season event that will take place before Season 9 begins.

As always, we will keep you updated with any fresh news on what role the Fortnite Gold Cube will play.

The mysterious Fortnite Gold Cube started near Holly Hedges and Weeping Woods before it began its long journey.

At the time of writing, it can be found in between Boney Burbs and Believer Beach, and it is set to head towards Pleasant Park.

As the object now appears to be continuously moving, its location will change drastically throughout Season 8.

It is expected to go past many of the named locations around the outskirts of the map before reaching its final destination.

If the Cube is moving, then where exactly is it going? Well, according to a leak from dataminer HYPEX, the Fortnite Gold Cube – along with every other alien square – is actually heading to the center of the map.

This location has been significant for some time in Epic’s ongoing narrative, especially in the Zero Point storyline that has dominated many of the game’s seasons.

It appears that all of the Cubes, except Blue, which is yet to budge, will all be meeting in the same place eventually.

What happens when all of the Cubes make their way to the middle remains to be seen, but if history is anything to go by, then fans can expect something big when they are reunited.

New leak claims Fortnite is adding another Warzone feature

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to implement a feature from Warzone in the game.

Ghost from Warzone and Jonesy in Fortnite

Some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Epic Games will be adding the sliding mechanic from Call of Duty: Warzone to Fortnite in a future update.

Battle Royale titles are highly competitive, and fans often call for these games to take inspiration from each other. Apex Legends players want Warzone’s matchmaking, and Warzone fans want Halo: Infinite’s Battle Pass system.

Now, some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games might be planning to add a feature from Warzone to Fortnite, as the game will reportedly get a sliding movement mechanic soon.

These leaks came from notable data miner HYPEX, who claims that the Fortnite developers are working on a new movement type in the game. This will come with a few benefits for players.

“It will increase your FOV by 15 when you’re sliding and it will make your camera shake, with a cooldown of 2 seconds,” HYPEX tweeted. “I don’t know the release date or if it’s gonna be an item!”

This sliding movement has been a staple of both Apex Legends and Warzone, so it might provide to be an exciting addition to Fortnite.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a leak, and you should take this information with a grain of salt until Epic Games confirms this. If it’s true, then this might be an exciting change.

The developers could introduce a cooldown timer so that players don’t abuse this mechanic in combat. If it arrives in the game soon, then we will probably see some big changes in player tactics.

We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this. For more Fortnite, check out all the Bounty Board Locations in Season 8, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
