Respawn's Apex Legends Boasts 10 Million Players In Just Three Days

"Apex Legends" reached one million concurrent players, and 10 million players over a period of 72 hours, Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella announced on Thursday.

The plot twist: EA shares were up more than 13% on Friday afternoon. Yes, players are dropped into a large map and are tasked with wiping each other out, but they do so exclusively in groups of three, which seems to give the game a much more strategic focus.

Apex Legends isn't the first game to have a quick "look here" button (the Battlefield series has a rather good one) or passive character chatter (Left 4 Dead was the first to master it), but it combines them seamlessly.

Just like in other battle royale games, the Apex Legends battle pass will have a wide range of cosmetic items. From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance. That certainly seems to be the case right now, as players around the world are reporting the error message, "unable to connect to EA servers".

That represents a much faster uptake rate than other wildly popular games like Pokémon Go, Candy Crush, and even Fortnite.

The one thing that you won't be able to obtain from the Apex Legends battle pass is new Legends. Are the Apex Legends servers down at the moment? "We're very excited about Apex Legends, the upcoming launch of Anthem, and a deep line-up of new experiences that we'll bring to our global communities next fiscal year". He also believes that this game's success could lead to greater interest in the coming release of the "Titanfall" sequel. This feature has not been confirmed, but it's likely going to be included as cross-play becomes more important, especially with next-generation looming.
