Despite Fortnite being a titan of the industry, grabbing popularity ever since the battle royale mode launched, it seems that Twitch viewership has taken a bit of a dive over the last month, as you can see from a summary of the last 30 days at SullyGnome.
Hours watched is down 24.4%, for example, while hours broadcast has fallen 27.6% as well. With average viewers dipping 27.6% too, these are all big declines for Fortnite, and TwitchTracker revealed that yesterday saw a low of 75,000 viewers over just under 4,000 channels, which is part of a steady decline since July, when the World Cup took place.
It's hard to nail down one cause, but instead there might be many. Streamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins revealed earlier this summer that he was leaving Twitch for Mixer, and another big star - Turner 'Tfue' Tenney - has announced that he's taking a break too.
On top of that, Minecraft has seen a surge in popularity too, with streamers and YouTubers alike creating their own content around Mojang's game, including Tfue himself.
What other reasons could there be?
Thanks, Fortnite Intel.
