APEX Legends surpasses 25 million players, over 2 million concurrent players peak

APEX Legends surpasses 25 million players, over 2 million concurrent players peak

But when can we expect it to arrive?

EA owns iconic games such as "FIFA", "Need for Speed" and "Battlefield" and launched "Apex Legends" last week in efforts to attract new audiences and take advantage of the popularity of the battle royale format, where dozens of online players battle each other to the death.

Aside from surpassing the 25 million user benchmark, Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella said Apex Legends reached a peak of more than 2 million concurrent players last weekend. But that could soon change. Sponsored by our friends at Twitch, the Rivals Apex Legends Challenge will take place this Tuesday the 12th and next Tuesday the 19th, with 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch competing live in Apex Legends. "I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we're in conversions about that". This is still exciting news for mobile gamers, though. Despite the sheer number of battle royale titles that have launched over the a year ago, none of them could really hold a candle to Fortnite, at least not as far as Twitch viewership was concerned.

"Apex Legends" stunning success should also greatly reduce the frustration with management sometimes expressed by investors.

We will still attack without Neymar and Cavani, says PSG’s Thomas Tuchel
Would they miss Rashford? "Of course they will", Tuchel said when asked if his PSG could replace the Brazil star. We play attacking football, we're PSG , that's what we're used to - to create opportunities, it's in our DNA.

Something else that's likely helping grow the Titanfall 2 playerbase is its frequent discounts on Xbox One and its inclusion in the EA Access subscription service which lets subscribers play it for free.

Firstly, there's the problems with Fortnite.

Each new Battle Pass for Apex Legends brings with it a host of new content. If you've got any questions, we've got you covered. Fortnite Battle Royale launched on Xbox, PS4 and PC in September 2017, while Switch players were forced to wait until June 2018. That will depend on how EA moves it forward, and whether it floods the game with in-app purchases like it has with other titles. "Fortnite" maker Epic Games is privately held, though Chinese investment firm Tencent Holding (OTC: TCEHY) holds about a 40 percent stake.
