Apex Legends has been a smash hit, with Respawn Entertainment’s take on the battle royale genre being overwhelmingly positively received by fans and critics. After reaching millions of players in less than a week Respawn’s Vince Zampella confirmed that the game has now reached 25 million players with a player count of 2 million concurrently.

EA and Respawn also made note of the accomplishment on their official site:

We’re also thrilled to announce that since last Monday, more than 25M players have jumped into the game, and over the weekend we had well over 2M concurrent players at our peak. Like I said earlier, what a week!

From everyone here at Respawn, thank you. The community’s excitement for Apex Legends is electric, and we feel it here at the studio. We couldn’t have gotten where we are without you and look forward to having you on this journey with us.

Apex Legends is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 for free.
