Electronic Arts have not exactly had the best time as of late but it seems their latest release may have given them a major push. Their latest release, Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has managed to boast that it had 10 million players in only 3 days. Its success caused EA stock to rise 14.47 percent, following a dip they suffered only earlier this month of 18 percent as reported by GameIndustry.
That drop follows disappointing sales numbers for Battlefield V and lackluster interest in upcoming game, Anthem’s two demos. The seemingly instant interest in battle royale game, Apex Legends has given the company a bit of reprieve in the news after what has just been a series of hard-hitting moments for the company.
While Apex may have been a hit, EA is still banking on Anthem selling five to six million copies in its first week. A mighty estimate given the reaction to it so far by some gamers and media outlets.
Apex Legends is free-to-play and available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Anthem was developed by Bioware and will be released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, February 22.
