Fortnite fans who were used to living on its embattled Earth were plunged into a black hole of despair a few days ago when the game went dark. Fortnite Chapter 2 has come into existence, and it was a huge relief to a significant portion of the United States.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the country, according to Satellite Internet, which amassed gaming statistics to determine each state's favorite game based on search. The game claims the top spot in 20 states spread across the country.
