Because of it's; depth and sophistication, smart design, shareable moments, social glue and it is totally free and easy!

They are just extremely fun. They don't last long, everybody starts with same gear and every game is different than the last.

Because our generation is addicted to getting addticted with something .... They are lost in this world and make things like this popular or in other cases "Tik - Tok " ... I still don't know why it exists..

Fortnite!! It offers something different in a busy space and effective cross-platform gameplay. It's totally fun and frustrating, in a very good way. And it's only just begun.. I am waiting for the crazy updates!

Fortnite Free and easy made it very popular, then being popular made it even more popular and by being free and easy quite a few players stuck to it. That said I hope it’ll just be another Pokémon Go, people will still play it in a year, but the mass focus it gets will shift to other products, hopefully something else than a shooter.

All games are built on one principal - How to we keep the user engaged.

It is scientifically known that while gambling, nearly losing generates the same response in your brain that winning will generate and hence you will be compelled to keep playing.

With the same principle, these battle royale games tickle the dopamine producers in your brain when you have small win (like killing an opponent), a big win (winning the game), or a near win loss.

It sets your brain into addiction mode asking for more. And hence they are popular.

For PUBG it was the first game of it's kind, and then FORTNITE just stole the idea of PUBG and MINECRAFT and put them together and made it free.

Everyone wants to know what it's like to be the last alive !

There is something really satisfying about competing against other players live. You get to show off your skills earn recognition and respect within that community. Pubg made battle royale popular and fortnite brought a unique gameplay within the battle royale genre.
