More than 10 million players reportedly watched Fortnite’s Marshmello concert in-game
Last weekend’s fantastic Marshmello concert in Fortnite: Battle Royale was nothing short of spectacular.
The 10-minute long performance offered fans free snippets of some of the American electronic music producer and DJ’s latest songs—and the concert attracted a lot of attention.

According to The Games Awards creator Geoff Keighley and Marshmello, the event reportedly had over 10 million players watching it in-game on Saturday. These numbers haven’t been confirmed by Epic Games at this time, however.
All these people tweeting about “oh this person did this back in 1965” or “this was done before” I get it but no one has done it to this magnitude besides @FortniteGame who else had a full interactive set where over 10 million players got to play?

Considering Fortnite has around 200 million registered players, this means that roughly five percent of the player base was in-game for the concert to dance along with the songs and have a good time.
If you weren’t one of the 10 million players who took part in the event, don’t worry—you can still check out the full live performance on YouTube.
