Apex Legends came out of the gate hot, but unfortunately it couldn’t keep up the momentum and saw a huge drop not too long after that initial hot launch. With season 2, EA and Respawn Entertainment were looking to to give the game a shot in the arm. Though, if EA’s stock drop is any indication, most likely that hasn’t happened.
As you can see here, EA’s stock has taken a dive this week. While we won’t know the specifics until later when EA’s earnings are made public, and though there’s lots of factors that lead to stock drops, the Twitch numbers for the game post-season 2 (which launched July 2nd) have been averaging around 50,000, less than half of what they were in March. While the number of views doesn’t necessarily equate to the level of revenue (which is ultimately the king of any qualifier), considering how much that revenue had dropped by April, low viewing numbers probably isn’t too good of a sign.
Respawn have already said they’ll not be making a sequel to the game, so let’s hope it’s successful enough to at least continue on. Either way, Apex Legends is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and Season 2 is live across all platforms.
