Recently, on August 25, 2023, Fortnite launched Chapter 4 of Season 4, called The Last Resort. In this chapter, Fortnite has broken the record for the most concurrent players.

In Chapter 4, as of now, this epic battle royale title has peaked at a concurrent player count of 2.81 million players on the third day of the ongoing season. The player count on the previous two days of season 4 was 2.43 million and 2.73 million, respectively. This breaks the previous record, which was set in season 3. The concurrent player counts for the first 3 days of season 3 were 1.94 million, 1.87 million, and 2.12 million, respectively.


Although this doesn’t take into consideration the stats from Chapter 1, Epic Games revealed the player count publicly in March. So, this is the first official benchmark from Fortnite. This staggering record would be much higher, as this benchmark doesn’t consider the creative mode. This metric is only based on the Zero Build Battle Royale and OG Battle Royale modes.

Chapter 4 of Season 4 is exactly an upgraded version of the fan-favorite Chapter 2 of Season 2. It seems this chapter has brought twice the joy that Chapter 2 of Season 2 gave us. The heist theme of the ongoing chapter is taking players back to the golden era of Fortnite.
