PUBG Praises Apex Legends Launch, Respawn Entertainment Responds
Free-to-play battle royale title Apex Legends is off to a tremendous start, racking up over a million users in the few days the title has been available for. A game that was made possible thanks in part to the many other battle royale titles that have come before, a nod from a game like PUBG would be rather appropriate for Apex Legends’ stellar launch, and that’s what Respawn Entertainment received thanks to PUBG creator Brendan Greene.
Greene recently posted a tweet through his official PlayerUnknown Twitter account congratulating the Respawn team on a successful launch. Additionally, the renowned creator also gave a special nod to the fact that Apex Legends represents an interesting and unique take on the battle royale game model.

We stand on the shoulders of giants. Thanks for paving the way! ??
