Fortnite Had Server Issues Last Weekend, But Achieved 3.4 Million Concurrent Players

A good problem to have


Fortnite, the game that was supposed to be known as the four-player co-op tower defence game but turned into a bigger deal with its free PVP mode Battle Royale, had another server issue last weekend.

But it’s a good problem to have it seems, as it also meant that they hit a milestone of 3.4 million users. In comparison, PUBG is the record holder for the most concurrent players on Steam at 3 million.

Epic detailed a postmortem at what exactly is causing its server outages and outlining the fixes they will do moving forward. There’s some real technical explanations that those that are familiar with how databases work will find fruitful knowledge from, like other multiplayer game developers.

Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode has grown this big thanks to it being free-to-play and available on the PC, Xbox One and PS4 (despite not having it officially on Playstation Store Asia). Surely as the battle royale genre is still hot cakes that concurrent number will continue to rise.
