Apex Legends Has Gotten 25 Million Players In Just Seven Days

Apex Games is pretty much the only game people are playing/watching/talking about right now, and EA is relishing in its surprise victory.

The unexpected launch of the battle royale game was leaked just the day before it was available, and it’s not only seen shockingly impressive player numbers, but it’s even helped get people back into Titanfall 2 online, seeing as how Apex is set in the same universe and all.

Although it’s no secret that Apex has been successful, the numbers published by EA have shocked the gaming industry, as it’s been revealed that the game has hit 25 millions players in just seven days.

Vince Zampella of Respawn Entertainment took to the EA website to express his thanks to the community, saying: “The community’s excitement for Apex Legends is electric, and we feel it here at the studio. We couldn’t have gotten where we are without you and look forward to having you on this journey with us.”

He also spilled the beans on what we can expect from the game in the coming weeks, writing: “I can’t tell you everything we have planned, and we are looking at changes based on player feedback and experiences. However, I do want to call out a few things happening over the next couple of weeks.

“First up, the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge. 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. We’ll be co-streaming all the action from our Apex Legends Twitch channel here: www.twitch.tv/playapex.

“Then, later this week we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day by introducing some limited-time Valentine’s Day themed loot, so all you (Apex Legends) lovers out there keep your eyes open.”

Along with the 25 million players, Apex can also boast of two million peak concurrent users within one week – something which took Epic Games’ Fortnite 16 weeks to achieve. Apex Legends is even having a “better launch than the most successful game in recent history,” according to analyst Thomas Rice.
