After an 11 straight months as the most-watched game on Twitch, Fortnite missed out on a full year dominating the platform thanks to Apex Legends’ release last month, which saw Respawn’s battle royale offering take the title of most-watched game on Twitch in February.

GitHyp reports that Apex’s peak of 670k viewers pipped Fortnite’s 615k to the post, relegating it to #3 for the month.

However, since then, Fortnite is back at the top spot on Twitch, with 269k viewers at the time of writing, compared to Apex’s 91.2k.

Apex Legends trounced Fortnite during its first week on the streaming platform, with 11 million more hours watched in the days following its stealth launch.

The game has 50 million players already, although the most recent concurrent playercount hasn’t been shared by Respawn.
