Increasingly more gamers give up on Fortnite as the game’s most extended season comes to an end.
Most fans of the game believe that Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1, feels like it’s been dragging on forever.
Epic Games, the developer of the game, provoked a lot of buzz with the Black Hole event back in early October, but they failed to make the most out of the newly – generated attention in the following months.
The signs of decline
The first and most concerning sign of the decrease in the number of Fortnite players can be observed in the Fortnite Twitch numbers, which don’t look too favorable for the game.
That is solid proof that Chapter 2, Season 2 can’t come soon enough. The Twitch Tracker rarely fails to predict trends in gaming.
The Twitch numbers
The average number of Fortnite views was 32k in September 2019. It rose to 58k in October but then dropped to 20k in December.
The number of maximum views was even more impressive: 66k in September, 171k in October, and a disappointing 21k in December.
Usually, the number of views increases around the start of a new season, so we hope to see Epic take advantage of the boost and keep the flame going.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 will most likely launch on February 20 for Xbox One, PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
It’s curious that, while the release date of the upcoming season is so close, Epic still hasn’t released any teasers.
