Yesterday's Fortnite update peaked at 37 Tbps. That's almost five times the bandwidth.
"To place this into perspective, this level of traffic could be like downloading the average cellular game 2.8 million times per minute," said Akamai's Nelson Rodriguez at a blog post.
Even though Fortnite posted some enormous amounts, it fell short of the overall traffic record. This was put on Sept. 15 of this past year, when there were a number of major events taking place, such as Hurricane Irma slamming into Florida. Traffic on such day struck 60 Tbps.
Fortnite is over a video game, it's a bonafide phenomenon. It is now mentioned over bitcoin on earnings calls. And its launch about the Nintendo Switch set records for that stage, with over 2 million downloads on its first day.
The game's creators have put up $100 million to get an esports tournament prize pool for the sport, which will be forcing even more players to give it a go.
