Fortnite and its immensely popular battle royale mode have now set a record for most videos uploaded in a single month throughout the entire history of Youtube.

The news came from the Twitter account of Ryan Wyatt, the head of Youtube Gaming.

"How big is on YouTube?" Wyatt tweeted. "Fortnite holds the record for the most videos related to a video game uploaded in a single month EVER. Yesterday, the Battle Royale tournament had over 42M live views, and set a record for biggest single live gaming stream @ 1.1M concurrent."

In terms of viewership, Fortnite continues to do extremely well with audiences looking to watch streams and videos, mimicking the Minecraft's rise in popularity on Youtube. Having already set records on Twitch and Youtube, it makes one wonder what could end up unseating it.

 

Our Take
Making sure your game is entertaining to watch is now just as important as making sure it's fun to play in terms of marketing it to a wider audience. Fortnite seems to be performing expertly at that and it's helping to propel the game to new heights.
