Last month’s Fortnite OG Season, which saw the battle royale’s meta return to its original state as it was back in Chapter 1, Season 5 from July of 2018, pulled in big numbers player-count wise; whether it was older fans flocking back with rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia, newer fans wanting to compare/contrast the current meta to the game’s inceptive state or a combination of both, the Fortnite OG Season saw the game enjoy record-setting concurrent player counts. The official Fortnite Twitter/X account stated that Fortnite enjoyed its biggest day ever on November 4th, “with over 44.7 million players jumping in and 102 million hours of play.”
Third-party Fortnite tracker Fortnite.gg also observed the concurrent player count hitting its all-time peak, with over 6 million players playing simultaneously at one point, which was nearly double the player count the game had experienced on average for most of the year prior to that.
That’s what makes the recently released Fortnite Lego’s accomplishments all the more impressive. That’s because Fortnite Lego, a new crossover mode where Lego-figure Fortnite players gather resources, battle or befriend creatures and of course, construct various buildings with Lego bricks, actually beat out the peak player count record set by the OG Season with 7 million concurrent players at its peak.
According to Fortnite.gg, 2.4 million of those players were playing Fortnite Lego mode, while standard Battle Royale mode reached a peak of over 850,000.
The following is a list of peak player counts for Fortnite‘s different game modes since the release of Fortnite Lego:
