Although the numbers of Apex Legends dropped rapidly after the launch, the Respawn game cannot be defined as a commercial flop, considering at least the numbers released by Electronic Arts during the company’s last financial report.
Apex Legends is currently played by an average of 8/10 million players per week, for a number close to 40 million active users on a monthly basis. Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen confirmed that Respawn is working on new content for the game and the plan is to support Apex for at least the next ten years.
The Titanfall authors’ Battle Royale was able to quickly generate profits and therefore continue to stay alive, the company also notes that ” there are other studies within EA that can support Respawn in creating new content “, by doing to understand that the studio of Vince Zampella could enjoy the help of other internal teams of the publisher to speed up the state of work and perhaps launch the new seasons more quickly.
Jorgensen in the specification cites DICE Los Angeles: ” The DICE team in Los Angeles has a great deal of experience in the shooter genre and can contribute to the growth of Apex Legends if they wish. “
