As Forbes notes, 83% of the 700 million hours viewers spent watching games from the massively-popular Battle Royale genre were used watching Fortnite, and the game brought in $296 million USD in April and $318 million USD in May. When it comes to Twitch alone, over 30 million USD Twitch users have viewed around 600 million hours of Fortnite from last October to May. Notably, the Epic release has accomplished all of this in less than year.
