'Apex Legends' Revenue Has Reportedly Fallen 75% Since Its Launch - Discussion

★★★★★ Apprentice

Article Excerpt from Forbes - All content is owend by forbes 

 

Apex Legends was once thought to be the first real potential Fortnite-killer, yet the more time goes on, the more Apex seems to be settling into being a less world-dominating sort of release.

It may have amassed more players in a shorter amount of time than any game in history, but the huge revenue numbers it was pulling in for EA at launch have fallen sharply in the last few months as players have moved on or refused to purchase one of the endless number of microtransactions that pepper the game.

Superdata is reporting that Apex Legends has fallen out of the top ten charts on both PC and console in terms of revenue, which is down to a quarter of what it was in the game’s launch month of February.

It's a multi-faceted problem.  Lack of content, lack of worthwhile skins/items to buy in the shop, and lack of attention to in-game issues such as leavers/cheating.  With regard to their shop, they could REALLY take a hint or two from FN.  Don't make us gamble on loot crates, it's insulting and I'll never buy them.  Sell a combination of serious and troll-tier skins along with dances/emotes that people can use to taunt their enemies.

@HyperXMousepad Did you just say dance moves?? LIKE fortnite?? serious? taunt your opponenets? when you die in less than 2 seconds?? how can you taunt anyway. plus that is the lamest crap I ever seen that Fortnite has. Not to mention the game is a joke anyway.

I'm not worried about this at all. Of course there was going to be a massive drop after such explosive start. Was it 50 million downloads in a month? This game will be fine.
