There are many reasons why Fortnite is thriving in an industry where longevity is hard to attain. It could be attributed to the constant interesting updates featuring famous characters (such as Superman, Spiderman etc) and the new seasons/chapters that keep on coming. Moreover, the age demographic of this game is mostly in the 18-24 age range (62.7% of users) and 72.4% of players are male.
It’s also a free-to-play cross-platform game which means you can totally enjoy it with friends on whichever platform they prefer to play on. Considering all of this and the addictive format of Battle Royale and more (such as Creative) – things are really in favor of Epic Games. That’s not all, there are frequent events by music artists such as Marshmello, Steve Aoki, Diplo etc that bring in a large crowd to the platform.
Fortnite is also watched for millions of hours on Twitch, Youtube Gaming, Facebook Gaming etc. In Q1 of 2021, 389 million hours of Fortnite streaming was enjoyed by users.
