Fortnite has been the world's most popular game for many years now and 2019 was another successful year for Epic Games' free to play shooter. According to the latest report from Gamesindustry.biz, Fortnite has been the most covered game of 2019.
The cartoon-style shooter is top of the list with 97,732 articles which is more than double when compared to the closest rival on the list - Death Stranding.
