Fortnite beats Apex and Warzone on Twitch to reclaim first Battle Royale spot
Epic Games’ Fortnite is back in the driver’s seat of battle royales on Twitch, overtaking Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone as the most watched games on Twitch.
Fortnite has seen a massive resurgence in 2022. Fueled by the controversial decision to remove buildings, BR has returned to the mainstream, which in turn has brought back some old faces we know and love.
Ninja and Tfue have seen their viewership skyrocket amid the nostalgia journey, making it feel like 2017 all over again.
The Twitch stats behind the comeback show that Fortnite really is a powerhouse again on the streaming site.
Fortnite dominates Twitch again
According to statistics tracking website SullygnomFortnite has become the most popular battle royale on Twitch in the last 30 days.
Fortnite outperformed competitors like Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone, topping out at 84 million hours of watch time on Amazon’s own streaming site.
As Fortnite surged, Warzone fell incredibly low, falling to 10th place at 36 million hours. That was a drop of just over 10% compared to the previous 30 days.
Despite a spike in Apex’s total hours watched, it was still nowhere near catching Fortnite, which has now entered Twitch’s top five games. Apex had previously overtaken Fortnite and Warzone towards the end of 2021.
It’s hard to say how long Fortnite will be back in the premier league of gaming on Twitch. The once unassailable king of Twitch is no longer the most popular game on the platform, but with players seriously enjoying Zero Build mode, it seems like many long-time players have returned and are now getting back into the game.
With the return of old Fortnite players, the game has returned at its best and could even have a shot at that top spot again.
