In last night’s quarterly financials call, EA once again touted how good the game has been so far for the publisher — more specifically, how the Apex Legends Lost Treasures event has pulled in gamers to play.
According to EA, Apex Legends Lost Treasures event had more than 96 million hours played in its first weeks alone! Not only that, but even the revenue has skyrocketed this 2020!
Apex Legends continues its momentum as an exceptional live service, building on strong performance through the last several quarters and bringing even more players together in the game. Q1 saw the most game sessions played and highest revenue total since the launch quarter for Apex, and engagement in Season 5 reached the highest levels since our first new season of content. Creative in-game events continue to be a huge draw for our Apex community, and the most recent event, Lost Treasures, had more than 96 million hours played in the first two weeks. We’re bringing Apex to players on the Switch and Steam, and we’re excited to introduce cross-play later this year so more players can engage and play together with their friends.
This is definitely good news. Don’t forget, Apex Legends is hitting is hitting the Nintendo Switch and enabling crossplay sometime this year too, so that should bring in more players to the fold.
