12 million people were logged in when the doomsday event took place, Epic says.
Some of those who could not attend the event watched livestreams of it. Epic said a combined 8.4 million people watched The Device on Twitch and YouTube. You can re-watch the event in the GameSpot video above.
Epic also teased that future in-game live events will be able to accomodate more users. “As we push the edge of what live-events can be, we’re improving systems so more of you can experience them in-game,” Epic said.
In a follow-up tweet, Epic confirmed that Fortnite Season 3 will begin on Wednesday, June 17. The studio also seemingly teased the long-running rumor that it’s a water-themed season, saying to fans, “We can’t wait for you to dive in!”
