Apex Legends Player Count Surpasses 10 Million In 72 Hours
Easily the biggest surprise in the game industry so far this year has been the surprise release of Apex Legends by EA. The free-to-play battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment released earlier this week, bereft of heads up from the developer or even EA. The game celebrated the milestone of one million players in just a few hours, and now, the Apex Legends player count has reportedly surpassed ten million players.
Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella recently shared the impressive milestone reached in only three days on his official Twitter account. Zampella also shared a post from the EA official website for the game, in which Zampella expressed his gratitude to the game’s fans.

As he says: “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.”
The post also mentions that the game reached the point where it has had one million concurrent players. Zampella understood that the decision to release the title by surprise was a risky move, but it seems to have paid off for the new battle royale experience. It certainly has amassed quite a following for the current moment, but only time will tell if Apex does stand the test of time and becomes a real legend.
