The biggest game in the world - "Fortnite" - is showing no signs of slowing down.
That's clear from the latest statistic to come out of "Fortnite" creator Epic Games: More than 200 million players have registered accounts, Epic Games confirmed on Tuesday.
Between June 2018 and November 2018, 75 million new players registered, putting the total at more than 200 million.
That's a pretty remarkable number. It puts "Fortnite" registered player numbers in the same realm as the most popular games of all time - games like "Tetris" and "Minecraft" and "Grand Theft Auto 5."
"Fortnite:Battle Royale"/Epic Games
That said, there's a big difference between "Fortnite" and those games: "Fortnite" is free, and available on pretty much anything that will play video games. It also doesn't hurt that the focus of "Fortnite" is an online-only multiplayer mode named "Battle Royale" that's endlessly re-playable.
It's that mix of attributes that's helped "Fortnite" become the most popular game in the world since the Battle Royale mode launched in September 2017.
It's been barely a year since "Fortnite" began its climb to the top, and already its victory dances have bled into professional sports.
It feels like months since Drake joined up with Tyler "Ninja" Blevins to stream the game on Twitch, thus boosting its visibility even more - but that's because it was months ago, way back in March. March!

And now, just one year after Battle Royale hit "Fortnite," more people are playing it monthly than there are people living in Drake's home country - by a factor of two! Way to make Canada look underpopulated, "Fortnite."
And if we're talking about registered players? At over 200 million, "Fortnite" has a player base that's nearly two-thirds of the entire US population.
