Battle Royale games aren't going anywhere, at least not when numbers like this continue to solidify the genre's existence. And that's a funny segue, because I didn't know this fucking game existed until today, but apparently 10 million other people not only knew about it, but are enjoying it an alarming figure.

I'll chalk this up to my old age and not being one of the cool kids who play Battle Royale games, because, you know, A Current Affair claims they rot your brain and corrupt the kids.

Anyway, instead of giving us Titanfall 3, as we'd expected (and kind of hoped), Respawn has dropped Apex Legends which is going gangbusters. And don't take my uneducated word for it, here's an open letter from the studio's head, Vince Zampella:
In 72 hours, over 10 million players have jumped into Apex Legends and we’ve breached 1 million concurrent players!

This has been a truly incredible journey. We tested and tweaked. We argued and agreed. We got to a point where we felt some magic. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too.

We hoped you’d love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we’ve seen. From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance. Thank you for joining us on this journey. This is just the beginning! We have so much more in store for you this year.

See you in the arena!

Absolutely bananas. Maybe I should stop staring at my grass to make sure no kids step on it, or yelling at clouds, and see what all the fuss is about.

Actually the game did come out of nowhere with no pre-release hype - everyone thought they were working on Titanfall 3 and didn't expect this at all... the fact that its free to play and a AAA developed game helped word-of-mouth very quickly... my only complaint is it is squad-only and no solo/duo modes exist
