Apex Legends has approximately one-fifth the player count that Fortnite has, at around 50 million. Fortunately, Apex Legends' success has probably staved off the grim reaper for quite a while.

A lot of popular Fortnite streamers moved to Apex - some for the promotional cash - and a lot of players did as well.

At GDC 2019 Epic released the Epic Online Service, a kit which lets developers add cross-play functionality to their games (as well as other features).

Industry intelligence firm SuperData Research has shared its digital sales data for the month of February, which includes some interesting numbers for EA's Anthem and Apex Legends.

Apex Legends launched their first season on March 19 with a similar structure to Fortnite's season and battle pass.

While Sweeney is taking aim at the games industry for not jumping on the trend of mobile gaming fast enough, there's another problem he doesn't address - namely that mobile hardware is still not in a prime place for competitive gaming.
