Apex Legends had a successful launch as it reached more than 2.5 million players in just a day

During its latest investor call, Electronic Arts revealed that Apex Legends had reached over 2.5 million unique players. Respawn’s battle royale title was able to reach 1 million players in just 8 hours so I think it is safe to say that this was a successful launch.

Apex Legends came out of nowhere and while there are some minor optimization issues, it’s one of the most stable release we’ve seen for a multiplayer title. We did not experience any connection issues and – with the exception of an NVIDIA DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error that occurs in the latest drivers – it works without issues.

According to Electronic Arts, the game has reached a peak of over 600K concurrent players, meaning that gamers can immediately find a server and play the game.

It will be interesting to see whether this success will continue later this month, whether Apex Legends will be able to top 5 million players by the end of February, and whether the number of concurrent players will be further increased!
