Apex Legends is a battle royale title based on the Titanfall intellectual property. The game revealed on February 4th, 2019, has faced yet another decline after late last month according to a new report.
After we reported on April 25th, 2019, that EA and Respawn’s battle royale title has lost around 90% of the market interest since its early February debut — which applies to Twitch viewership — it looks like the current year inclusive game has seen yet another revenue drop.
The websites in question sourced superdataresearch.com to relay the news of EA’s battle royale shooter Apex Legends “experiencing a steep decline” from launch to now.
Although Apex Legends earned $24 million in April, Superdata shows that the game is “down significantly” for the second consecutive month. In February, information on Apex Legends’ digital revenue was at $92 million and has dropped by 74%.
The quote tucked at the bottom of the analytic website regarding digital sales and revenue displays the following information about Apex Legends decline in said department:
“Apex Legends falls out of the top rankings on console and PC. Apex Legends generated $24 million in April, down significantly for the second month in a row. Monthly revenue now sits at just over one-quarter of the launch-month sales from February.”
With all of that said, I wonder if the game will continue to sink or if it will recover? However, if the last two months are any indication, the game could set a new personal low.
Anyway, Apex Legends is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One for free.
