PUBG only looks at steam. Doesn’t look at Xbox, isn’t on PS4, and it costs $30. Fortnite is free. They can’t really be compared.

They can be compared in the fact that both are really bad.

The genre is kind of interesting, but so far, every game in that genre was bad. Maybe a AAA Studio will make a good one later.

If those shitty games can get that much players, think how much a good game with the same idea could do.

Fortnite is a bit better than PUBG, AND is free. BUT being better than shit doesn't mean much.

R* already tossed in a BR mode with GTA V.

Yeah, but from what i saw, they made it focusing on vehicles, and the really bad part, those vehicles had weapons. I might be wrong since i didn't play it, but from what i saw it looked bad.



By the time pubg launches on ps4 I'll have zero interest. Fortnite has me now. I win on average 1 in 7 solo matches and 1 in 8 squad matches.

MAU...ST impressive Sony!

Not only is Fortnite free but it's also, in my personal opinion, a better product than PUBG. And I think more and more people are having the same opinion.

It’s free. It takes 3 platforms to exceed PUBG numbers on one. When it launches on PS4 the numbers are going to skyrocket.

I know it’s natural to compare them, but they really play nothing alike. But I quit Fortnite long before PUBG came to console and now there’s no point in going back, I watch people play and it still has the same shit loot system and shit gunplay that made me quit playing. I don’t think it would be nearly as popular without that free factor.

200 thousand more than PUBG peak concurrent players.

When did PUBG reach that number?

Reminds me of when MHW is going to hit in 7 months time. Dauntless will likely have me by then.

PUBG's was around 3.2m right?

Fortnite is bigger than people give it credit for.

The 3.2 was PC only. Add in Xbone and it’s gotta be pushing closer to 5 million. I think Xbone PUBG is at 3-4 million sold.

Crazy to think between those two games alone you’re talking about 7-8 million+ people. I think Leagues highest was 7.5.

League on a monthly active player base, has like 80-90m players.
Pubg & Fortnite are still growing :)



Number of days to reach 50M from 40M : 198 days
Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days
Number of days to reach 80M from 70M : 227 days

Yeah PUBG will continue to grow, but Fortnite is far outpacing that growth and likely will continue to from here on out.

Player count was 2 million concurrent players 2 weeks ago. Up 1.2m concurrent players in 14 days. They had 5 million new players sign on in 4 days. Over 45 million players. Up 20 million since November.

The game hasn't even launched in China yet (the biggest market for PUBG).

Fortnite is a much better game all around, better updates, more variety, even a better visual style. The problem PUBG might find on the PS4, is that it's arriving late, an existing game in the genre has had a huge amount of time to establish, and it's not free.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.
