They must've been planning this even before Drake and Ninja broke records on Twitch, but Epic Games is all ready to jump on the celeb bandwagon with a massive E3 event for Fortnite.

During the live stream, Drake shared his approval of pineapple on pizza and the future development of the co-op game. Fans can also check out his Twitch page for a few dozen videos of him playing "Fortnite" and other games including "Overwatch" and "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds".
Only major eSports tournaments can begin to touch this new record, as the all-time highest number of concurrent viewers for all streams is still held by Eleague Major: Boston 2018 at a lofty 1.1 million viewers. At one point, the stream had more than 600,000 viewers. According to Kotaku, the achievement wouldn't be possible without crossplay, which gamers have been requesting across platforms.
