The nodes essentially became overwhelmed searching these longer-than-usual server lists for somewhere to place queuing players, eventually looking for free servers on lists that belonged to other nodes.

The wildly popular online game Fortnite has surpassed $1 billion in revenue, according to a new report from research firm SuperData. In the game, an entirely optional $10 Battle Pass allows players to earn and collect in-game currency called V-bucks, which they can spend on costumes, accessories and dance moves for their playable character.

Fortnite was not the first game to bring the battle royale genre the to the masses.

But it's not just that a lot of people are playing the game - Fortnite has also emerged in recent months as one of the most-watched video games.

The glitch was only recently discovered today, so it's likely that Epic Games won't be able to fix it for a good while, unless they think it's amusing enough that it would be better to just leave it in. Most importantly, however, is the promise that this Fortnite merch lineup will be released worldwide, so you won't have to go hunting for Target exclusives on the other side of the world.
