Fortnite has 78.3 million monthly players according to Epic Games. 

This number puts Fortnite up there with some of the biggest games in the world and beating many other games handily. Epic Games casually dropped the news in its post about the Fall Skirmish. 

One important note to this statistic is that  Fortnite has still yet to be released in China. This is easily one of the biggest markets in the world for video games and would make the game's player counts explode

With the launch of ​Season 6 coming soon and new changes coming to the game, many players are excited for what is to come to the game. It only feels like the beginning for the Fortnite community.
