EA Confirms Apex Legends Season Three Was Bigger than Season Two
After launching last year, EA has confirmed that Season Three of Apex Legends was bigger than Season Two, bringing in more players than ever.
In EA’s latest fiscal earnings call, the publisher confirms that season three of Apex Legends was bigger than season two.
“It’s nearly one year since we took the industry by storm with Apex Legends, and the strength and opprotunity of this IP and live service continue to grow,” says Andrew Wilson, EA’s CEO. “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.”
Wilson also confirms that Lenovo is the latest sponsor for Apex Legends‘ esports community. Lenovo will join other partners like Pizza Hut, Snickers, and Gillete among others. Additionally, he confirms that Apex will launch in China as a way of growing EA’s mobile presence in Asian countries.
On top of Apex’s success, EA confirms that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sold eight million copies since its launch last November. It beat EA’s expectations of selling 6-8 million copies before EA’s current fiscal year wraps up on March 31, 2020. Because of this, they’ve adjusted their expectations to selling 10 million copies by March 31. Additionally, The Sims 4 finally reached 20 million players since its launch five years ago.
Recently, developer Respawn Entertainment confirmed that Revenant is the next hero to join Apex Legends in Season Four. Speaking of Season Four, it launches on February 4 which will include new guns and other new features.
