March 15, 2018 by

Over the past month, Fortnite has become the most popular game on Twitch, topping League of Legends and doubling PUBG’s viewer base. And now, even the musician Drake is jumping on the Fortnite hype train.

Playing together with pro gamer and Twitch’s new biggest streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, the two set a new all-time peak record for a single streamer’s channel with 630k concurrent viewers.

But Ninja’s stream with Drake didn’t just set a new record, it absolutely crushed last month’s previous record-setting peak of 388k concurrent viewers set by Dr Disrespect’s infamous return.

The 630k peak also marks the highest viewer count ever for Fortnite, which only had a peak of 140k viewers last month, and has now placed Epic’s shooter as the #4 most viewed game ever on Twitch.
