Apex Legends Has Hit 50 Million Players In A Quarter Of The Time It Took Fortnite
Another week, another victory lap for Respawn Entertainment. In the month since Apex Legend's launch, the game's audience has grown by leaps and bounds.
As this handy chart points out, Apex Legends' audience growth has already reached 50 million players within the span of a month. It took Fortnite four months to reach 45 million players. While some of this growth difference is obviously the result of the proliferation of the battle-royale genre among a mainstream audience since Fortnite Battle Royale's release, it still shows that Respawn's stab at battle royale has cemented its place in the field.
Thank you to the 50 million players that have shown up in the first month since Apex Legends launched! You have all made this something special and there's much more to come! pic.twitter.com/EoDcjF5q9E— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) March 4, 2019
