Its Been a Week Since EA & Respawn Entertainment launched Apex Legends in Big 3 Platforms. Now, it’s numbers is only going up and up.
In a recent article release on Ea’s official Website by the Vince Zampella, (CEO, Respawn Entertainment) he said “We’re also thrilled to announce that since last Monday, more than 25 million players have jumped into the game, and over the weekend we had well over 2 million concurrent players at our peak. Like I said earlier, what a week.”
Even though this has been a good start for Apex Legends, there is still a long way to go before it comes close to the 200 million user base that Fortnite has, as per the November 2018 numbers by research firm Statista and PUBG, which clocked 20 million daily active users, as per the last reported numbers in September 2018. PUBG even won the Game of the Year by Valve.
And “Apex Legends” became the most watched stream on Twitch this past weekend, garnering some 300,000 active viewers, or about three-times that of “Fortnite,” according to Twitch data.
