Popular battle royale game Fortnite is hosting a Travis Scott concert within the game over the next two days, and the first showing of the concert took place last evening at 7PM ET. While we already expected the in game event to be a massive hit, Fortnite has now come out on Twitter and given out the official viewer numbers for the concert titled ‘Astronomical’.
According to Fortnite’s tweet, the concert saw a whopping 12.3 million concurrent viewers on its first day, setting a record for the most number of concurrent players on Fortnite. The number is also a huge leap over Fortnite’s 10 million record set last year during the in-game Marshmello concert.
Over 12.3 million concurrent players participated live in Travis Scott's Astronomical, an all-time record!
