According to Epic Games, Fortnite has passed 20 million players across all platforms since its launch. Just two months after claiming ten million copies sold-a remarkable achievement by any measure-creative director Brendan Greene said on Twitter that it has now moved past 20 million.

More than 20 million players have already tried the multiplayer sandbox shooter since its release in Early Access.

For those who may have been living in a cave for the past year, PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds is a large-scale multiplayer deathmatch inspired by movies like The Hunger Games and Battle Royale.

This is of course ahead of a console launch on Xbox One on December 12th, which opens a new and potentially lucrative console market for PUBG. 100 players are dropped onto an island without any weapons or equipment and have to gather resources and eliminate opponents in order to become the last person standing. 20 million gamers have shelled out $30 each for Battlegrounds, with 2.37 million concurrent gamers, Battlegrounds is definitely far out and ahead.

Fortnite has been out on PS4, Xbox One and PC with an open beta of its Battle Royale mode. The game that felled it was-you guessed it-another PUBG-esque mobile game.
