During EA’s quarterly earnings call late last night, EA talked about some of the company’s most recent succesful gaming properties and that of course, included Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends.
In the call, EA mentioned that they are expanding the Apex universe with “more ways to play and watch,” and that the plan is to have the free-to-play battle royale game be on more platforms by fiscal year (FY) 2021.
We’re also expanding the Apex universe with more ways to play and watch. We have plans to reach more platforms in FY 2021 and there’s a lot of excitement in the esports community for the Apex Legends global series that is now underway. We’re pleased to have Lenovo as an official sponsor for Apex competitive gaming joining Gillette, Snickers, Pizza Hut and other major brands and broadcast networks partnering with us on our esports portfolio. – Andrew Wilson, EA Chief Executive Officer
In the same call, Wilson revealed that in terms of player activity, Season 3 was bigger than Season 2 in terms ofdaily active user numbers.
It’s nearly one year since we took the industry by storm with Apex Legends and the strength and opportunity of this IP and live service continued to grow. Apex is an outstanding example of the innovation across our portfolio. Seasons of new content are coming at a regular cadence for the growing global community.
Season three was bigger than season two, with higher peaks in daily active users. Within those seasons in-game events are engaging players with content and challenges that show the imagination and creativity that we are continually pouring into the experience. – Andrew Wilson, EA Chief Executive Officer
