    When Fortnite was originally launched, the original base may have only been 40 GB's...  HOWEVER, all the updates, patches, premium DLC (cosmetic items), additional game modes & whatnot which was not initially included has cause the game to balloon up to the 81 GB's you've mentioned.

    Many publishers & developers tend to forget to update their support pages / FAQ's when it comes to system requirements after they release it...  GTA V for PC right now is quoting 72 GB's for install space, when it's closer to 92 GB's after all updates.

    This type of "development creep" in the modern age can throw the size of games off & it's something that you'll have to take into account nowadays.

    It may be a 40 GB download of compressed data that becomes 80 GB once expanded.

    Not saying this is the answer, just a possibility.
