Apex Legends hits 50 million players


Share this article


Battle Royale newbie Apex Legends has hit 50 million players, the games’ official Twitter confirmed today.

Launched overnight without any hype only four weeks ago, the game became an overnight sensation, even more impressive in a genre already dominated by Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

It took Fortnite 16 weeks to reach 45 million players, although it’s now at around 200 million players, mainly thanks to the mobile version.

As this info from Niko Partners’ Videogame Analyst Daniel Ahmad shows, the rise of Apex Legends has been truly meteoric.

Apex Legends shows no sign of slowing down, with new Legends, maps, and skins confirmed to be on the way by developer Respawn Entertainment. Apex will also get its first Battle Pass this month, which will kick off the first official season and extend the life of the game almost indefinitely.

Fortnite and PUBG shouldn’t be too worried about their spots at the top, but it’s clear Apex Legends is here to stay.
