We’ve now hit three days since Apex Legends was announced and subsequently launched and Respawn has announced some very impressive numbers for the game.
In a blog post, Vince Zampella (CEO of Respawn Entertainment) confirmed that Apex Legends has now reached 10 million players with a massive record of 1 million concurrent players logging in at once.
This is pretty damn impressive, but so well deserved for a game that has done a great job in introducing some absolutely fantastic mechanics into the battle royale genre. You can read some more about that HERE.

In 72 hours, over 10 million players have jumped into Apex Legends and we’ve breached 1 million concurrent players!
This has been a truly incredible journey. We tested and tweaked. We argued and agreed. We got to a point where we felt some magic. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too.
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. 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.
