Apex Legends has lost its huge momentum This year’s breakout battle royale game couldn’t keep up with its own success.

But a lack of updates, a litany of bugs, and some fierce competition has destroyed Apex Legends’ launch momentum.

In the first month of its release, 50 million players downloaded Apex Legends in search of a new battle royale experience.

While minor bugs are part of any major video game patch, Apex Legends’ issues recently crossed a line.

Just a few weeks after Apex Legends’ release, Epic lifted the ping system that helped make Apex stand out at launch.

While all of these issues sound dire for Apex Legends, the truth is that it’s actually pretty normal.

Given enough time, perhaps Respawn will be able to do the same with Apex Legends. »
