What is the Most Popular Game in the World?
The most popular video in the world is Fortnite. According to an announcement from Epic Games in November, Fortnite has over 8.3 million concurrent players -- meaning over eight million players are playing Fortnite at a given moment. A previous announcement in September revealed almost 80 million people play Fortnite monthly.
Fortnite rose to popularity steadily on Twitch and it increased when rapper Drake played Fortnite with Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. The game's popularity continues to rise in mainstream media, as seen with Ninja's appearance and stream at the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square.
