Live streaming of video games has become a popular trend in recent years, and "Fortnite" is taking it to the next level.
There are 3.2 million broadcasters on streaming site Twitch, which is close to 60 percent higher than 2017. Since Epic Games launched the battle royale version of "Fortnite," the game has taken over the site.
It's beating out games that once dominated the platform like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and "League of Legends." In fact, from 2016 to 2018 no other game has controlled more than 40 percent of gaming channels on Twitch.
"Fortnite" is also blowing up on YouTube.
"The fact that 'Fortnite' now holds the record for the most video game-related uploads in a single month on YouTube is wild," said Ryan Wyatt, head of YouTube Gaming.
Then there's Friday Fortnite, an event from Las Vegas hosted by streamers like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Keemstar.
Unlike esports competitions, which are tied to official leagues, Friday Fortnite is a group of enthusiastic gamers trying to out-survive each other to win prize money. In June, Keemstar said the competition pulled in 8.8 million unique viewers. To put that in perspective, the season finale of AMC's "The Walking Dead" brought in 7.9 million viewers, the first round of the NFL draft raked in 5.3 million and the season premier of "Westworld" reeled in 2.1 million.
