Over the last week, a third of the one million players tracked in our Xbox Gameplay Chart have tried out Apex Legends – an increase of 30% over the previous week. The player base is double that of Fortnite, which remains in second place in our chart.
According to our sample more than three times the number of gamers who are currently playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are trying out Apex Legends.
The game's success shows no signs of stopping with more content promised for March with the start of the Battle Pass and players eager to try out rumoured new game modes and Heroes.
