An online divorce website says the popular video game Fortnite has been cited in over 200 divorces this year.

According to the website , the divorce petitions received specifically mention an addiction to Fortnite and other video games as one of the reasons for divorce.

The website says the digital revolution has introduced a new way for relationships to break down.

These now include online pornography, online gaming and social media, so it is no surprise to us that more and more people are having relationship problems because of our digital addictions, a company spokesperson said.

In a blog post from Epic Games back in June, Fortnite has grown to 125 million players.
