Apex Legends Battle Royale hit 2.5 million players and nearly 600,000 concurrent in its first day and hit ten million players and one million concurrent just a few days later. Today marks a week since it went live with no beta testing or pre-release hype, and there’s no sign of slowing growth: Respawn boss Vince Zampella said that it has now rung up more than 25-million players, and “well over two million concurrent players” at peak.
He also touched on near-term happenings in Apex Legends that include the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge, with more than 48 streamers competing against each other for a $200,000 prize across two events on February 12 and 19, and the start of the game’s first season that will introduce new characters, loot, weapons, and the Battle Pass. Valentine’s Day-themed will also be available for a limited time beginning later this week, my guess would be February 14, which according to Wikipedia is the actual “Valentine’s Day.”
It’s not confirmed, but Apex Legends could also be getting Solo and Duos modes, and ranked play, at some point in the probably-relatively-near future.
