We can definitely say that 2018 was a great year for Fortnite. The fact that the Fortnite Season 5 Trailer got on the first place of the most watched game trailers in 2018 says it all.
You’ll say that Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man were better, but this year’s narrative was dominated by the guys behind Epic Games’ Fortnite! They are the ones that propelled the battle-royale gameplay and made it mainstream, so it’s no surprise the trailer was the most watched game trailer this year.
Fortnite Season Five Announcement Trailer Gets Over 48 Million Views
In less than six months since it was released, Fortnite Season 5 Announcement Trailer was viewed 48.6 million times!
At a pretty big difference behind Fortnite’s trailer came the Fallout 76 official trailer with just 33.8 million views in almost six months.
Next, Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer got the bronze medal for only 27.9 million views.
On the fourth and fifth place, Supercell conquered the most watched videos for mobile games with Clash of Clans: Hammer Jam – 22.3 million views and Clash Royale: Clan Wars -20.3 million views.
The rest of the top ten is in this order: DOOM Eternal E3 teaser – 13.4 million views, Minecraft Aquatic Update – 12.4 million views, GTA Online: After Hours – 10.6 million views, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout announcement trailer – 6.4 million views.
We should mention that the top ten is only considering single trailers and does not take into consideration views on unofficial accounts. This means that some games can get more views, but they get spread in different versions of the trailer on different channels.
Nonetheless, no other trailer compared to the 48 million gathered by Fortnite’s Season 5 trailer when the game was at its peak. If you have not watched the trailer or want to watch it again, check it out on YouTube by following this link.
