Yes it's revenue dropped, but I asked about the ton of players the player base dropped according to the user I quoted. The revenue dropped but they're still recording records for concurrent players. Also, January is a quiet for most industries, I know because I'm a retail auditor. Another thing, the season pass for this period was sold in December.Red J Phoenix wrote:Though I am for an innovative BR, I forgot where I saw it( I think ign) but fortnite's revenue dropped 50% last month and personally most of my friends have quit Fortnite and the modern BRs even though we used to play them all the time. We've all gone back to Halo and Rocket league and Minecraft, so I can see this actually coming true, the BR trend fading away that is. I am a little sad, but I won't lose sleep about it, and I still have my classic multiplayer games like the three above that will be around for a LONG TIME. But yeah, BR is(however slow) starting to fade away.eviltedi wrote:Do you have a link to show that Fortnite has lost a ton of it's player base ? Searches show no recent results, if anything it's doing fine, and so is Battle Royale, Apex Legends launched recently and hit 25 million players in a week, and had 2 million concurrent players on it's first weekend. Fortnite and Apex Legends are well supported games.HoneyBeanzTM wrote:And, also worth noting, Fortnite has thankfully lost a ton of its Player base. BR isn't gonna happen in infinite.
I think a Halo stand alone Battle Royale would do well, Apex Legends shows that Battle Royale games are not dying out. If anything there is a massive market for them with three of the top 5 most played on XBL being Battle Royale. The trend will dip, but as soon as another game comes along it will pick up. The one Battle Royale game not doing well is PUBG. It's dropping the Xbox One most played list.
However, I don't believe it's failing because it's a Battle Royale game, it's a mess to play imo. Even on the Xbox X at times. I don't think it's well supported by it's devs, and they got too greedy with overpriced add ons in a paid game imo. Fortnite and Apex Legends, are well supported and free to play. I believe there is room for a Halo Battle Royale, I hope it happens at some point.
Like I said, the player base looks solid, and they can afford to drop a great many after the incredible success they've had. I'm not too bothered, I don't play Fortnite or Apex Legends, but I feel there is room for a Halo Battle Royale. I linked one of the reports I read below. They dropped revenue, but it seems the players are still there.
Fortnite revenue drop.
