Fortnite's 2-Day Black Hole Was the Most Viewed Gaming Event Ever on Twitter and YouTube

The 2-day long black hole, titled "The End", that occurred prior to the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, was one of the most mysterious and baffling moments in the game's history, and viewership figures for social platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, and Twitter have been released: many records have been broken.

According to the Verge, Epic Games revealed that on Twitter and Twitch, the black hole broke viewership records with 1.7 million peak viewers on Twitch and even more baffling figures on YouTube and Twitter.

On Twitter, Epic says the black hole was "most viewed gaming event on Twitter, with 50.7 million minutes watched and 42.8 million views," peaking at 1.4 million concurrent viewers. While on YouTube, viewership hit an astounding 4.3 million concurrent viewers, making it one of the most viewed gaming events in YouTube's history.

Figures for players who were viewing the black hole from the actual game and not a social platform have not been released by Epic, but we're hoping they are revealed in the future.
