Apex Legends has more than 50 million players worldwide

Postby mmocs » Wed Mar 06, 2019 12:34 am

Apex Legends might not be growing at quite the breakneck pace it enjoyed during its first week, but it's still climbing at a very healthy rate. Respawn and EA have confirmed that the battle royale shooter now has more than 50 million total players worldwide after just over a month since the surprise release. They haven't revealed the number of simultaneous players, but its first weekend saw upward of 2 million people playing at the same time.

While not specified, this 50 million player number is likely referring to anyone who has ever downloaded and played the game on PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, regardless of if it was one match or 100. In a brief video included with the announcement, developer Respawn Entertainment also revealed that over the last month, 158 million finishers have been used, 1.23 billion ultimates have been activated, 31 billion pings have been placed, there have been 170 million respawns, and more.

The popular comparison to make is that Apex Legends is growing at a much quicker clip than its closest competitor, Fortnite Battle Royale. It took Fortnite’s free battle royale mode several months to hit the 45 million players mark — but there are numerous factors to take into consideration before ogling graphs that suggest Apex is the new battle royale champion.

The ping feature is one that immediately set Apex Legends apart, but it's already inspired imitators. Fortnite, the current leader in the battle royale space, recently updated with its own ping system. And if BioWare takes our recommendation, Anthem won't be far behind. It makes sense that the ping system has gotten so much use, as the feature allows easy non-verbal communication to flag points of interest for your teammates.

It remains unclear when the first season of Apex Legends will start and how expensive a Battle Pass will be. On Twitter and in Reddit the developers have asked for patience. After all, the game only went live a month ago and they currently working hard on new content, balancing and troubleshooting.

Apex Legends' 50-million player mark, achieved in less than 30 days of release, actually tops Epic Games' launch of Fortnite, which took a few months to hit the 30 million players milestone in December 2017. Fortnite is still the top dog, however, reaching over 200 million players last November and posting its top month in revenue last December and hosting its largest single event, an in-game concert by DJ Marshmello in February, that logged over 10 million players.
