Apex Legends Has Already Surpassed 10 Million Total Players

Porting a first-person battle royale title like Apex Legends to mobile devices and implementing cross-platform play is going to be easier said than done, though, so we'll see if Electronic Arts announces plans that are more concrete in the near future.

"The video game industry continues to grow through a year of intense competition and transformational change", Wilson said.

"We're very excited about Apex Legends, the upcoming launch of Anthem, and a deep line-up of new experiences that we'll bring to our global communities next fiscal year". We are now applying the strengths of our company to sharpen our execution and focus on delivering great new games and long-term live services for our players.

"As I said earlier, we are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time, and I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we're in conversations about that", the CEO said in response to another question regarding Apex Legends.

EA's executives noted that it sold 7.3 million copies of Battlefield V in the latest quarter, which was 1 million less than its guidance for this quarter. He also pointed to the game's holiday launch.

All indications point to this mysterious entry being a spin-off with new mechanics, however the emphasis on "premium" from Wilson indicates that it will carry the Titanfall name unlike Apex Legends. Seeing as it is an ad that appears, it likely means that Epic Games set it up to advertise their battle royale game when players search for a specific keyword or phrase.

While many developers have tried to capitalize on Epic Games' success in the battle royale genre, gamers have likely wondered if Fortnite can be overthrown. As MarketWatch observed, EA shares suffered their worst single day decline in over a decade, plunging 13.3 per cent on weak performance.
