Fortnite went from making $3 billion in revenue in 2018 to being joked as a "dead game" by the gaming community two months later. Fortnite still has an extremely large players base sitting at around 200 million, as well as billions in the bank to improve the game.

Despite some people missing older school battle royale games, we think it's pretty great according to our Apex Legends review in progress.

The big update regarding the player count was that Apex Legends has amassed more than 25 million players with over 2 million concurrent players at its peak.

"Despite having over 600,000 less total hours streamed than Fortnite in the past seven days, Apex Legends incredibly has had nearly 11 million more total hours watched", notes Dexerto.

Apex Legends is already available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The viewing numbers for Apex Legends have crushed the competition, in large part due to the number of top streamers making the switch to the new game.
