Fortnite from Epic Games is back in the driver’s seat for Battle Royales on Twitch, overtaking Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone as the most watched on all of Twitch.
Fortnite has seen a massive resurgence in 2022. Fueled by the controversial decision to remove the building, the BR has regained popularity, which in turn has brought back some old faces we know and love.
Ninja and Tfue have seen their ratings skyrocket during the nostalgic trip, making it feel like 2017 all over again.
The Twitch stats behind the comeback reveal that Fortnite is truly another powerhouse on the streaming site.
Fortnite dominates Twitch again
According to the statistics tracking website sullygnome, Fortnite has become the most popular battle royale on Twitch in the past 30 days.
Fortnite surpasses competitors such as Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone, reaching 84 million hours of watch time on the Amazon-owned streaming site.
As Fortnite soared, Warzone dipped incredibly low, falling all the way to tenth place at 36 million hours. That was a loss of just over 10% compared to the previous 30 days.
Despite an increase in Apex’s total hours watched, it still wasn’t close to catching Fortnite, which has now entered the top five games on Twitch. Apex previously overtook Fortnite and Warzone by the end of 2021.
It’s hard to say how long Fortnite will be back at the top of games on Twitch. The once untouchable king of Twitch is no longer the most popular game on the platform, but with players seriously enjoying the Zero Build mode, it seems like many old players have returned and are now once again committed to the game.
Bringing back old Fortnite players puts the game back on top form and could even have another shot at that number one spot.
