Epic Games is celebrating big today after the Fortnite World Cup turned in big numbers for them as an organization and as an event. One of the biggest being that it had over 40 million players participating from more than 200 countries. As the devs now look toward Season X, they've released the full list of winners and placement for everyone who participated this past weekend.
Over 19,000 fans attended the three-day Fortnite World Cup Finals in person at the sold-out Arthur Ashe Stadium. On Sunday during the Solo Finals, concurrent viewers peaked at over 2.3 million across YouTube and Twitch, making the Fortnite World Cup the most-watched competitive gaming event (excluding China) of all time. These numbers do not include fans watching in-game and on other streaming and social media platforms.
