Crypto Being Teased As The New Character In Apex Legends

Apex Legend is still pushing to be a game for players to play. The game was released 6 months ago and was able to get 25 million players in its first week of launch.

A lot of gamers where wondering if this was going to be the game that Kicked Fortnite off the top. Of course it didn’t and even the ceo of Epic made a comment about Apex Legends.

In an interview with TechCrunch, the ceo talks about how Apex legends didn’t do much to hurt fortnite.

“We’re very close to hitting 250 million Fortnite players,” said Sweeney. “Since Apex Legends came out, we’ve gained an Apex Legends worth of Fortnite players, which is amazing.”


The game that Sweeney said hurts fortnite for loss of players is FIFA.

“We hit a Fortnite non-event peak twice after Apex was out,” said Sweeney. “We haven’t seen any visible cut into Fortnite. It’s a funny thing. The only game you can see where its peaks cut into Fortnite playtime is FIFA. It’s another game for everybody, wildly popular around the world.”


Stats for current player count playing Apex Legends couldn’t be found, but only speculation that the 50 million players playing the game has dropped.
