Apex Legends hits 2.5 million players in 24 hours

With a peak of 600,000 concurrent users too, it's been a pretty successful launch for Respawn and EA so far.

Apex Legends was only fully revealed on Monday night via a livestream held by Respawn Entertainment, and while we already knew it was a battle royale game, here they gave us all the details like a roadmap of content ahead and a ton of trailers, including for all of the characters. We also got the news just recently that it launched with one million players trying the game in eight hours, and now those stats have risen.

Reporter DomsPlaying on Twitter has revealed numbers from a Q&A section of EA's Q3 earnings call, which shows that the game has seen 2.5 million unique users in the game after 24 hours, which is leaning towards 3 million users as things stand. What's more is that there has been a peak of 600,000 concurrent users.

It's safe to say then that the game has been a roaring success for Respawn thus far, and has generated a lot of buzz around it, especially since streamers and internet personalities were invited to try the game before release, and have since been playing it after launch. We got to try the game ahead of time too, and you can read our impressions right here.

While it may have taken the place of Titanfall 3, Respawn has made clear that Apex Legends has a lot that separates itself from the competition when it comes to battle royale games. Would you agree?
