The 'Fortnite' craze

It may be hard to believe, but some people on earth still don’t know about “Fortnite: Battle Royale.”

It’s a shoot-'em-up game, and holy moly is it huge. “Fortnite” grew to having 125 million players less than a year after its launch, its developer, Epic Games, said last month. In February, “Fortnite” hit a peak of 3.4 million simultaneous players, and the company made a record $318 million in May.
