Despite all that, though, Fortnite has maintained roughly the same amount of total hours streamed on the site - meaning the players and communities built around the game are certainly still there.

It's clear there is an audience for this as Apex Legends was at the top of Twitch all day with streamer Shroud commanding around 200,000 views at one point. Another factor is its quality, according to Ahmad, who points out that numerous popular streamers have been raving about its game play.

Solo is perhaps one of the most requested game modes within Apex Legends, with replies from Respawn CEO Vince Zampella making it look like it is on the cards.

Developed by Respawn Entertainment, a development studio Electronic Arts has owned since late 2017, Apex Legends features a similar battle royale-style of gameplay popularized by Fortnite.

During EA's recent earnings calls, EA Games chief Andrew Wilson indicated that the company is exploring the opportunity of porting the game for mobile and also introducing cross-play in the future.

Game publisher Electronic Arts said last week that it is looking to the releases of "Apex Legends" as well as BioWare's "Anthem" to help following a hard financial quarter. Season seven has brought a number of controversial changes to the game that have frustrated long-time players, and it seems like the time was right for a new battle royale game to take their interest.

Now, over 25 million gamers have signed up for Apex Legends in just one week.

What makes Apex Legends so popular?

The good news is that Respawn and EA have both said that a "premium" game in the Titanfall universe is set to debut later this year. Over on ResetEra, member Nefer has noticed the uptick in players, and have made a post comparing the Titanfall 2 player count before and after Apex Legends' release.

So, the question that is on everyone's mind, is Apex Legends really "the Fortnite Killer"? Let us know if you enjoyed what you saw today! That will depend on how EA moves it forward, and whether it floods the game with in-app purchases like it has with other titles.
