PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds may be the king on PC, but Fortnite: Battle Royale is running the streaming scene on PlayStation 4, far surpassing the number of streamers for any other game.
An image taken by ResetEra user v_iHuGi reveals that Fortnite‘s streamer count on PlayStation 4 recently sat at 5,582, according to the PS4’s Live from PlayStation stream tracking page, with runner-ups Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: WWII sitting at only 1,145 and 1,028, respectively. This means the combined streamers of two of the industry’s most popular games don’t even amount to half of Fortnite‘s streaming community.
Granted, these numbers could have been an anomaly due to various factors, so Game Rant checked the numbers again at a different time. At that site’s report, Fortnite supported 4,623 streamers at the new time, while the other two games only had a combined 1,784, suggesting that the pattern is consistent. We did our own check at time of writing, too, and the difference was even more drastic. Fortnite has 3,744 streamers, while the second and third place games combined for 1,295—barely more than a third of the Epic shooter’s tally.
Another ResetEra user found Fortnite to be leading the pack in terms of multiplayer currencies as well, with its V-Bucks landing above Call of Duty: WWII‘s COD Points, Madden NFL 18 Ultimate Team Points, and Rainbow Six Siege‘s R6 currency.
Fortnite is still in early access, but the full game is expected to launch sometime in early 2018 with both its cooperative survival component and its Battle Royale mode.
