‘Apex Legends’ Surpasses 10 Million Players, 1 Million Concurrent in 72 Hours

Respawn's fledgling battle royale shooter Apex Legends breached 1 million concurrent players within 72 hours of launch.

Following a surprise release (that was totally revealed days prior thanks to a whole host of leaks) Respawn and EA's Apex Legends is out in the wild.

In regards to the game's success, it's a bit unusual since the battle royale scene has been seemingly over-saturated and dominated by games like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout. That number was confirmed by Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella via Twitter. Yes, players are dropped into a large map and are tasked with wiping each other out, but they do so exclusively in groups of three, which seems to give the game a much more strategic focus.

That represents a much faster uptake rate than other wildly popular games like Pokémon Go, Candy Crush, and even Fortnite.

On Wednesday publisher Electronic Arts it is looking to the releases of "Apex Legends" as well as BioWare's "Anthem" to help following a hard financial quarter. Respawn has been clear that the game isn't a sequel to Titanfall 2 and that more is coming in the Titanfall universe in the future. However, that was most likely because the other two people left before the start and not because of a lack of players. One thing on the minds of EA is the inclusion of cross-play for the Battle Royale game.
