Apex Legends har nått två nya milstolpar i miljonklassen. På tre dagar har 10 miljoner spelare testat Respawns gratisspel och över en miljon har kört det på samma gång. Studiochefen Vince Zampella skriver i ett blogginlägg att de inte kunde ha väntat sig denna respons i deras vildaste drömmar.

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.

Dessa siffror sätter Apex Legends på samma nivåer som Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, Dota 2 och Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
