It’s just been 3 days since Respawn Entertainment and EA released Apex Legends but the game already reached more than 10 million unique players.
According to Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella, the newly released Apex Legends hits 10 million registered players and 1 million concurrent players playing the game in just 72 hours. This progress is quite impressive especially when they revealed that Apex Legends hits 1 million in just 8 hours since launch. Now, it breaks another record in the gaming industry.

“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,” Respawn Entertainment said on their official post.
“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,” the company added.
With the warm and positive feedback from the gaming community, Respawn has promised that it is just the beginning of everything. As of writing, some of the features that have been confirmed are the season events, battle pass, new Legends, new weapons, and loots.
