In a statement from Epic Games Korea CEO Sung Chul Park, Fortnite has reached an incredible 8.3 million concurrent players worldwide.

It's an astonishing achievement, particularly when you remember that, back in February, the game hit an all-time high of 3.4 million concurrent players. So, yeah, this is kind of a huge deal. A spokesperson from Epic confirmed the numbers to VG247 as well. At the time, that caused major network disruptions for Epic. Additionally, there are two referee skins available for 800 V-Bucks, so you can give misbehaving players the penalty of elimination.

Earlier this week, Fortnite announced a partnership with the National Football League which allows the game to use team skins in gameplay.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman also criticized the Qatari money transfer to Gaza. Employees had to present a copy of their identity card and be finger-printed.

To get that in perspective, that is more concurrent players than the total of all the people playing all the games on Steam combined, a Next Web report points out. It will be interesting to see how South Korean players fare in Fortnite - PUBG is immensely popular over there and given the recent success of Gen.G Gold at the PUBG Global Invitational this year, can Fortnite surpass it like it has everywhere else? For general Fortnite news, keep an eye on its website.
