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

After one week, the game has already surpassed 25 million gamers and has "well over two million" concurrent players, according to Respawn CEO Vince Zampella.

And it does sound like Respawn is planning for some kind of Apex Legends crossplay support in the future. But that could soon change.

Later on the call, he also talked a bit more about mobile too: "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". But the point is that calling Apex Legends a success (at least at launch) would be an understatement.

Gamer World News Entertainment host Tian Wang on the impact of Fortnite on the video game sector and even the entertainment industry.

Peak viewership numbers tell a similar story, with Apex Legends securing 491,894 viewers and Fortnite landing at 326,454. It's probably the combination of the words "free to play" (free with in-game purchases, of course), battle royale (a mode that can any shooter in 2019 can't go without) and Titanfall, the beloved gaming universe in which the game is set.

Firstly, there's the problems with Fortnite.

"'Fortnite" has more than 200 million players and it has expanded on a number of platforms like mobile", Ahmad says. When you see your favorite streamer having fun with a new title, you want to try it out. The insane thing about these numbers is that Fortnite has consistently had more streamers - Dextero says that Apex Legends had 600,000 fewer hours streamed than Fortnite throughout the week, but had 11 million more hours watched.
