We knew that more than 10 million people watched Marshmello’s recent concert within video-game Fortnite. Now we’ve got a specific figure from the game’s publisher Epic Games.

“On February 2nd, Fortnite had its best event day ever with 10.7 million players showing up for the Marshmello concert,” it told The Verge.

It’s interesting to note how this compares to the (just-set) record for simultaneous players when there isn’t a special event. “This past weekend on Saturday, February 16th, the game saw its best non-event day ever with 7.6 million players in the game concurrently,” explained the company.

The article points out that the audience for the Marshmello performance was larger than 10.7 million thanks to viewership on Twitch and YouTube.
