Apex Legends Hits 10 Million Players Total, 1 Million Concurrent Users

Apex Legends is a free-to-play first-person-shooter battle royale game created by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts.

In an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Respawn Community Manager Jay Frechette also confirmed "Technological Tracker" Bloodhound, whose real name, age, and homeworld are unknown, is either "non-binary, or at least non-specified, in terms of gender". The surprise announcement and simultaneous release also seems to have done the trick, as it feels like everyone is talking about and play Apex Legends right now. But saying "the T word" at the very moment when fans are taking their first tentative steps into Apex Legends is pretty audacious unless there's something substantive behind it.

Not only that but it's already recorded 1 million concurrent players, i.e. the number of people playing the game at the same time.

If you've chose to download the game then we've got you covered with some of the questions you may have.

Another important achievement, which Zampella hasn't mentioned, is that Apex Legends is now the most popular game on Twitch. Have you given Apex Legends a shot?


That's quite some achievement for Respawn Entertainment, so much so that they felt the need to submit a blog post to thank players. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch.

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.

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. The game is entirely free-to-play and is funded by the optional purchases of in-game cosmetic items.

Some Trackers do cost more material than others so that's something you'll want to be aware of.

We really doubt a single player mode will be added on as the studio is apparently working on a new Titanfall title for later this year.
