Apex Legends Hits 10 Million Players in 72 Hours

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

Respawn hasn't made any official announcements regarding upcoming plans for its new free-to-play battle royale title yet, so while nothing has been confirmed, it could be a great way for the developer to keep the momentum going.

Respawn boss Vince Zampella could barely contain himself on both twitter and a new blog post, in which he thanked fans and spoke of, "a truly incredibly journey".

For now, we know that the next proper Titanfall game is at least on the minds of the people who make the games, even if they're currently preoccupied with giving Apex Legends a strong start.

If you've chose to download the game then we've got you covered with some of the questions you may have. Apex Legends' peak recorded almost 600,000 concurrent players, proving that the game is indeed starting strong. Because of these two gameplay features (and the fact that the game can only be played in squads of 3 players) Apex Legends is a much more team-focused battle royale game, which actually manages to offer a different take on a genre that has been so rinsed in recent months. The polish and freedom allowed in Apex Legends could lead it to be one of the biggest games of 2019. As it's also a free-to-play game, it's expected to take on Fortnite in the future - assuming the game's success continues.

Respawn, the developers of the Titanfall series, dropped Apex Legends earlier this week with no marketing and no mention, but that hasn't stopped the game from gaining popularity.

That's not an accident either, as publisher EA has purposefully courted major streamers such as Dr. Disrespect, Sacriel, TSM_Myth, and shroud with prize-funded competitions. We have so much more in store for you this year.

Of course, reaching 10 million four times as fast as Fortnite is no small an achievement, but Apex Legends' real test will be in the weeks to come.
