Addressing the perceived skill gap between controller, mouse and touch screen players, Epic cited pro players like NickMercs, Ayden, KamoLRF, and AmarCoD as proof "that controller players can be successful while competing against some of the best PC players in the world". Almost 80 million people played Fortnite during the month of August, and new content was recently released for season 6 of the game.
