Report: LEGO Fortnite helps title hit 7.6m concurrent players

The launch of the new LEGO Fortnite mode has helped Epic's reach over 7.6 million concurrent players over the weekend.

That's according to data from, which shows that the title hit a peak of 7,654,387 million simultaneous users on Saturday, December 9th. That's across the entire game, but LEGO Fortnite on its own saw a record of 2.45 million concurrent players on Saturday.

That's already more users than any Steam game save for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has had at any one time – that title hit a record of 3,257,248 concurrent players back in January 2018, according to SteamDB.

That 7.6 million concurrent player figure is also dwarfed by the 11.6 million people who tuned in to watch the Fortnight Big Bang event at the start of December. The battle royale smash hit had already started to see more interest from the start of November, when Epic took Fortnite back to its original map.
