EA's recent earnings call has already revealed some interesting information, as we heard that 49% of PS4 and Xbox One sales in the last 12 months have been digital, and now Game Informer reports on some news regarding Respawn's Apex Legends coming out of the same call.
During the call EA talked about plans to expand the game to other platforms, and Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted that this plan involves bringing the game to China and mobile devices.
We heard that the game had 50 million players in March (making it the fastest-growing new game EA has), and the earnings call reaffirmed that number, with EA adding that 30% of players are new to the EA ecosystem.
As for what they're doing to support these players, Respawn has reaffirmed their commitment to building a stable game for the future, since they've banned 770,000 players so far and are working on more avenues for tackling cheating.
EA also revealed in the call that the team are focused on delivering new content as part of the long-term service, having learned from the huge launch that led to various challenges. We even hear that the free-to-play model has been a success for EA, so much so that they're looking to create more games of this sort over time, albeit not at the expense of premium titles.
