The battle royale shooter has grown quite a lot as time has gone on.
It was early 2019 when Apex Legends launched. A game technically in the same world as Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall (which its ninth season will show more than ever before), it joined the many battle royale shooters in the market. While the game had a hot beginning, it felt like there was some sag afterward, but now we know the game has found a solid audience.
Via the game’s official Twitter, it’s been announced that the game has now crossed a major threshold: 100 million players. The game is free to play, so how much of that equates to paying customers is anyone’s guess, but either way, a lot of people have at least tried the game out since that original launch over two years ago.
Apex Legends is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. You can read about the planned new game modes the developer has in mind through here.
100 million strong, and we're just getting started. Thank you, Legends! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/FlINru0lx5
