Apex Legends possibly coming to mobile and with cross-platform play too

The launch of EA's new battle royale game Apex Legends completely shattered the expectations of what a new release can do on Twitch, with 50% more viewership than League of Legends.

The 25 million milestone was shared by the game's official Twitter account, complete with the comment that the success of the past week has been beyond Respawn and EA's wildest imagination.

Developer Respawn kept the development of Apex Legends under wraps, unveiling the finished game with very little fanfare and allowing the game to become a word of mouth phenomenon nearly overnight.

"We are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time", Wilson confirmed during a recent EA earnings call.

The newly released battle royale game - labeled as "the Fortnite Killer" - went from a buzz-worthy title to an online phenomena in mere days.

EA announced this week that Apex Legends, which came out on February 4 has more than 25 million players and had "well over 2 million concurrent players at our peak" in its first weekend.

"Apex Legends" is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC. Not too shabby for a game that is just a week old - it was released on February 4 - and now has the likes of Dr Disrespect, Ninja, and Shroud among its star players.

Apex Legends continues to grow.

There's always 99 problems to worry about while playing in a battle royale game, but Apex's loot system isn't one.

There were no specifics given on what kind of loot this will be, but fans will nonetheless be excited for it given that it's the first themed loot drop in the game's short life cycle. Even sans titans and wall-running, Apex's snappy shooting and smooth sliding made enough players curious to know more about Respawn's earlier work. But more choice is usually a good thing, especially when Apex Legends is a tad bare at the moment.
