Apex Legends continues to grow, reaching 10 million players in 72 hours

Newly released battle royale title Apex Legends announced the other day that it had amassed 2.5 million players and hit 600,000 concurrent players within the first 24 hours of its release, but it doesn’t look like the game has hit its apex just yet. Respawn Entertainment has announced that as of yesterday, a mere three days after launch, over 10 million players have joined the fray, and the game’s concurrent player count has breached one million.

Needless to say, the folks at Respawn are pretty chuffed with the game’s performance, especially considering that it was released with so little fanfare to drum up excitement. Vince Zampella, the studio’s CEO, gushed enthusiastically over the news, writing, “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,” and adding, “This is just the beginning! We have so much more in store for you this year.” Whatever the studio’s got planned, it certainly looks like it’s got a bright future ahead.
