Apex Legends sets new player records in the wake of Season 14

  • by

There’s surely been some corks popping on celebratory beverages and clinking of glasses at Respawn Entertainment this past month, as Apex Legends (opens in new tab) continues its steady climb among the peaks of gaming. The release on Season 14 last month saw the popular battle royale push to a new peak player count of 511,676 concurrent players, an approximately 47% increase over the previous month.

More subtle, but perhaps more important, the minimum and average daily peak players have grown significantly as well. That’s not always true with peak player record breaking months, and a subtle look at this year’s numbers for Apex show a steady trend. Apex Legends is now averaging a minimum of over 300,000 players at any given time—329,041 in August.
