Since launching just over a week ago, Fortnite’s Battle Royale has been doing well for itself.

At launch, Fortnite Battle Royale attracted over a million players. Now that more and more people are finding out about it, the numbers are growing.

Developer Epic Games shared a couple of new stats the game managed to achieve on Sunday. First, Battle Royale had 525,000 concurrent players across all platforms, this is a new peak for the game.

Across all regions (North America, Europe, Oceania), Fortnite Battle Royale had 3.7 million daily active users on the same weekend.

This is a great start, no doubt, but one can’t help but wonder if these numbers could be much better. Considering the game is free-to-play, and the fact that it’s the only battle royale mode on consoles, you’d expect double or triple these numbers.
