Xbox Fans Turn Up In Numbers As Fortnite Sets Incredible New Records

This past Friday saw the arrival of the "Fortnite OG" mini-season, bringing the original map from Fortnite's battle royale back into the fold for the first time in years, and it's safe to say it's been an absolute smash hit for Epic Games so far.

According to analyst Mat Piscatella of Circana (formerly NPD), 38% of all active Xbox players on November 3rd ended up playing Fortnite, and the average play time was 195 minutes per-player. Incredible!

Then, the official Fortnite team announced over the weekend that November 4th was the biggest day in the game's history, racking up over 44.7 million players and 102 million hours of play across all platforms.

If you're interested in checking it out for yourself, Fortnite OG only appears to be sticking around for about a month's time, so you haven't got long! Hopefully its huge success means we'll be seeing it again at some point in the future...
