CEO Andrew Wilson has confirmed that EA is "looking at" a mobile port of the free-to-play battle royale game. Well, reliable Fortnite data miner ShiinaBR did a bit of digging into Apex Legends' code, and found evidence solo and duos modes might be on the way.

Aside from surpassing the 25 million user benchmark, Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella said Apex Legends reached a peak of more than 2 million concurrent players last weekend.

The launch of EA's new battle royale game Apex Legends completely shattered the expectations of what a new release can do on Twitch, with 50% more viewership than League of Legends. Not too shabby for a game that is just a week old - it was released on February 4 - and now has the likes of Dr Disrespect, Ninja, and Shroud among its star players. Another factor is its quality, according to Ahmad, who points out that numerous popular streamers have been raving about its game play. It reached more than 1 million players in under eight hours and hit 10 million in less than 72.

The EA-developed title is free-to-play, like its main rivals Fortnite and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, although it offers a number of additional features at a price thanks to so-called Loot Boxes which can be bought for additional in-game items. The game debuted in October 2016 and was mostly praised for its single-player campaign.

Manveer Heir, a game designer who has worked with EA, told video game guide site Waypoint in November 2017 month he had seen people 'literally spend £11,400 ($15,000) on Mass Effect multiplayer cards'.

The massively successful first week is due in large part to a plethora of Twitch's most high-profile streamers spending large amounts of time airing the game. It's not like there's a community event going on, which sometimes happens for less-than-new titles, either.
