This beats out the record set in Fortnite's last season-ending of 12 million players!
The event had players fight against Galactus while piloting the infamous Battle Bus to shoot down the titan's drones. This battle marked the end of Season 4 and the current Marvel collaboration. However, it does open up a new partnership with Disney's The Mandalorian!
Fortnite's popularity appears to be holding firm, and with the collaborations with popular IP's, it is safe to say that Epic Games is doing a great job at keeping Fortnite both unpredictable and entertaining all at the same time!
