In March, Respawn cheerfully revealed that over 50 million players had tried Apex Legends, but it seems as though the games' second season managed to slow things down significantly. Fortunately, it seems that the big changes made for Season 3 have boosted player numbers again.

Now, the studio has announced that over 70 million people have tried the game out. In addition, topped with the success of FIFA 20 and The Sims 4, it's no wonder that Blake Jorgensen, the company's COO and CFO told investors the following:

"The strong results this quarter illustrate the power of our live services and our core franchises. Strength in Ultimate Team, The Sims 4 and FIFA Online drove live services performance above our expectations. Looking ahead, we are doubling down on live services combined with our core franchises. We're investing in games that people play for longer and engage with much more deeply. This focus will continue to drive growth and profitability for the company through the remainder of this year and beyond."

With this, it seems like we can confidently say that EA will continue to focus on microtransactions and the like in most of its games in the years to come. Time will tell if they will be able to find a way to implement these without creating any more unwanted headlines.
