Fortnite New Head Blasts Twitch and Twitter game royal battle. A week after restarting the Fortnite game Battle Royale with the second chapter, Epic Games shared data on the success of the premiere. Views on social networks were off scale.
The developers made the start of the second chapter of the game really memorable. On the eve of this event, gamers could not play for two days, because they had a break – instead of gameplay, a “black hole” appeared on the screen. This event, officially called simply “The End” and opened the 11th season of Fortnite, gathered a record number of viewers on Twitter and Twitch. It is reported that on the Twitch platform, more than 1.7 million people simultaneously watched the official Fortnite stream or the streams of popular gamers associated with this event. Epic Games noted that it was a record on this platform for video in one game category.
On Twitter, restarting the battle royale was the most popular gaming event with 42.8 million views. In total, social network users watched 50.7 million minutes of video from this event. Epic Games reported that a metric of 1.4 million simultaneous viewers has been reached. On YouTube, the largest of the three sites, 4.3 million simultaneous viewers were counted across all channels. This indicator, of course, is far from a record, but also very good.

Perhaps the second chapter will breathe new life into Battle Royale, as analysts say that things are not going so well with the game. According to Superdata , just before the start of Chapter Two, Fortnite revenue has reached its lowest point since the launch of the royal battle. September revenue from the game on all platforms ( PC , console and mobile version) decreased by 43%, compared with September last year.
