Well this should be an interesting topic, a battle between two Battle Royale games that seem to have very passionate players for each side.
Fortnite is an online game created in 2017. It offers two main game modes. The first is “Save The World” which is quite fun on it’s own, but what made it popular was it’s “Fortnite Battle Royale” game mode where 100 players fight on a map that becomes smaller and smaller by a circle that will deal damage if they don’t stick inside it. Last person alive wins. Famous for it’s extensive building of structures during game play used for strategy. Fortnite Battle Royale has gained over 125 million users in under a year!

Fortnite was created by Epic Games who are based out of North Carolina. Thee company was founded by Tim Sweeney. On top of Fortnite, which is a HUGE hit for this company, they also created the Unreal Engine, which is a game engine that powers their games as well as others. In 2011, they were listed in the Guinness World Records for “Most successful video game engine”.
PUBG, also known as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is also a battle royal style game created in 2017. 100 players parachute on to an island where they find weapons and equipment to kill other players before they themselves, get killed. Last person standing wins. The game is one of the best selling titles ever, with over 50 million sold across all platforms by June 2018!

Created by PUBG Corporation which is an internal studio of Bluehole. They don’t really seem to have a super interesting story besides buying out another company and merging. Boring business stuff, but I did find it amusing that they use the Unreal Engine, which Epic Games created.
Fornite vs PUBG Trending Statistics
Here is a graph from Google Trends that measures what people search for over the years and provides us with a break down. From the looks of it, Fortnite has almost always killed PUBG. It was never really even close.
Most Famous Fortnite Player
Fortnite has such a huge audience that creating popular names in the Fortnite circle is probably quite a bit easier. The obviously person would be Ninja (Tyler Blevins). When comparing famous players with PUBG, I was looking for names of people that could possibly be household names. For example, even your mother who has never played Fornite, may have heard people talking about Ninja at some point.
Ninja used to be a Halo killing machine and has been a professional gamer for quite some time. It doesn’t seem to matter what game you put in front of him, he kills it.
