Fortnite continues to reign supreme on Twitch – even after the release of both Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
It seems that Epic Games’ smash hit Fortnite Battle Royale is continuing to dominate the Twitch charts – retaining almost double the amount of hours watched of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and its all-new Blackout Battle Royale mode.
According to The Esports Observer, the amount of hours watched from the Week Commencing October 22 of Fortnite Battle Royale on Twitch is 17.52million hours in the UTC+0 timezones, compared to the 15.64 million hours watched of League of Legends – which has been high on the charts for years.
Black Ops 4 has gone down to 4th place for the week – leaving Fortnite unmoved as champion and allowing Red Dead Redemption 2 to take over third place. However, Red Dead Redemption 2 released on this week, leaving it likely to go down and allow Black Ops 4 to retake third place behind League of Legends and Fortnite.
There is also more factors that may contribute to Fortnite Battle Royale keeping its status as viewership champion. This week, TwitchCon 2018 dedicated a huge hall to the game and the grand final of the Fall Skirmish tournament, as well as being the center of content creators’ social media posts, videos and more. It also hosted a Stream-vitational event – pitting streamers against attendees of the convention.
We also do not have any prominent Call of Duty content creators taking reign on the Twitch channel charts. The top channels were mostly game companies such as League of Legends’ Riot Games or the official Fortnite twitch channel. Ninja was just below with 1.8 million hours watched in the week.
