That’s over 8 million unfortunate jump leaders.
EA’s new battle royale shooter Apex Legends has reached 25 million total players since its debut last week.
An update on the official EA website from Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella announced the news of the milestone, which also notes that the game hosted two million concurrent players during its peak over the weekend.
During its first three days, Apex Legends drew in 10 million players, 2.5 million of which were during the first day. This isn’t too shabby given that Fortnite broke the 8 million mark last November.
Been waiting all day to tell you this madness… @PlayApex hit 25 million players this morning. Read more about it at the link below. Remember we have Season One starting in March and more surprises coming. https://t.co/gwj1sZSQnY

The update also touches on a few upcoming events for the game including the Twitch Rivals Apex Legend Challenge, Valentine’s Day celebrations, and the commencement of the first season.
The Twitch Rivals Apex Legend Challenge will run on February 12 and 19, and will feature some of the most popular Twitch streamers competing in game.
Valentine’s Day will see specially themed loot available for a limited time and March will ring in the beginning of Season One, complete with new legends, weapons, and more.
