Apex Legends has recently received its second season of content, and according to a recent EA earnings call this has gone down quite well, especially after the lukewarm response to the content in the first season.
"We're pleased with its performance, with regards to both sales and engagement. We will continue to add content during the quarter, with a major event in mid-August, and Season 3 will begin next quarter. We are increasing investment in content development and marketing to continue to drive growth in Apex Legends," CFO and COO Blake Jorgensen said.
That's not all though, as CEO Andrew Wilson also teased some upcoming content for the game that will be bringing some interesting features:
"We have a massive global audience continuing to engage in this high-quality, free-to-play experience. Apex has tremendous gameplay at its core, and we've built it to have longevity as a live service that will continue to drive engagement over time. In our live service, we're delivering Seasons of new content - a collection of new content and updates that begin to roll out at the start of each season, and continue throughout the course of several weeks and months. We launched Season 2 in early July, including a robust Battle Pass offering, a new character, and additions to the environment - and to date, it has outperformed our expectations with significant growth in daily and weekly active players."
"In each season, there are in-game events that are additional drivers of engagement - such as the event coming in the next few weeks that will bring new content and deliver one of the most fan-requested features since the launch of Apex. There will be more updates and in-game experiences in the weeks to come for Season 2, and Season 3 is shaping up to be even bigger. All of these elements - the fantastic core gameplay, Seasons of new content, and additional in-game events - are designed to continually excite and engage the Apex community over the long-term."
Elsewhere in the report we heard that esports interest in Apex Legends is strong, but we'll just have to wait to see what's ahead for Apex, since details are scarce with regards to future plans.
What could this "fan-requested feature" be?
