The Travis Scott Fortnite Concert Was Attended By More Than 12 Million People
This is “an all-time record” for the game
Travis Scott set a new record with his Fortnite concert. Fortnite developer Epic Games has revealed that the concert was attended by 12.3 concurrent players in the game. The developers have stated that this is “an all-time record” for the game. Previously, the record was held by Marshmello whose concert brought in 10.7 million virtual participants.
However, this number is not an actual estimate of the people who watched the concert. Since streamers were broadcasting this live event from platforms like Twitch and YouTube, a number of people saw the concert outside. Moreover, fans who missed seeing Travis Scott in Fornite need not worry. The performance is being treated as a mini world tour, so there are plenty of other dates when players can catch it.
Here are the upcoming show times:
- Friday, April 24th 10 AM ET
- Saturday, April 25th 12 AM ET
- Saturday, April 25th 11 AM ET
- Saturday, April 25th 6 PM ET
The Travis Scott concert on Fortnite was kind of like an interactive music video. It brought a psychedelic feel to the game. Just before the event was scheduled to start, the digital guns were replaced with flaming microphones. Players could hoist these above their heads and dance much like a real concert.
Travis Scott also used the Fortnite platform to premiere a new song with Kid Cudi titled “The Scotts”.
Fortnite has held several high-profile pop culture events in the game before. It premiered a clip from “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” as well as a concert from electronic artist Marshmello.
