‘Apex Legends’ Hits Twitch Running With $200,000 Competition

‘Apex Legends’ Hits Twitch Running With $200,000 Competition

Apex Legends is already standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Fortnite and PUBG for concurrent players, but the EA chief believes that there's something unique about Battlefield that will allow its own battle royale experience to also flourish. However, neither performed as expected.

Looking at the numbers, Q3 ending on December 31, 2018, had EA hitting $1.289 billion in net revenue. The reality of playing with friends across different platforms is still new, so it should gain more traction as time goes on. Fortnite and Rocket League both have jumped into the cross-play scene and have received much praise for doing so.

This was revealed by EA CEO Andrew Wilson during the publisher's latest earnings call. So for us, we don't put anything in the game unless we think it fits and makes the game better'. EA wanted Battlefield V to sell around 8.3 million units but only ended up around 7.3 million.

Microsoft Expanding Xbox Live To Nintendo Switch, iOS, And Android
It also offered Xbox Live achievements on its Windows Phone platforms, but this capability was limited to a handful of games. This plays right into Microsoft's SaaS playbook, create a service, expand it to new platforms, and then grow its user base.

According to COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen, FIFA is still performing well despite the other franchises falling. The executives attributed this to the game's lack of a battle royale mode at launch and blamed developers for focusing on the single-player mode too much. He also pointed to the game's holiday launch.

Phil Hornshaw, who wrote up our early impressions of Apex Legends and is now putting together our review of the game, earned the necessary 12000 Legend tokens to unlock one of the two Legends when he reached level 23, which took him about 17 hours. "Unfortunately, the later release date meant the game launched deeper into a competitive holiday window where heavy price discounting was a big factor".

This is something that Battle Royale competitor Fortnite does not have, yet it's the number one requested feature from players. Investors are certainly being cautious-EA's share price is down more than 13 percent this morning.
