Apex Legends

It's only been out for about three days now, but Apex Legends has already surpassed 10 million players. The new free-to-play battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment and EA also hit another milestone and surpassed 1 million concurrent players.

The news broke just moments ago courtesy of a short message of thanks from Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella.

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!
