Just a couple of days ago, Respawn Entertainment unveiled Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe. Today,Vince Zampella, founder of Respawn Entertainment, made a huge announcement: Apex Legends has crossed 10 million players. In addition, it’s got over one million concurrent players.
Here’s what Vince said:
In 72 hours, over 10 million players have jumped into Apex Legends and we’ve breached 1 million concurrent players!
This has been a truly incredible journey. We tested and tweaked. We argued and agreed. We got to a point where we felt some magic. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too.
We hoped you’d love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we’ve seen. From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance. Thank you for joining us on this journey. This is just the beginning! We have so much more in store for you this year.
See you in the arena!
This is a massive amount of players within just a couple of days. We’ll have to see how Respawn continues to evolve and balance the game but for now, it’s seems like they have a hit on their hands.
