Hype for Apex Legends has steadily fallen. Respawn Entertainment has been slow to update and support the game, and its first season pass was sublime. The combination of these two things has been sufficient to suppress the game’s buzz. And with their buzz down, streamers don’t flow much. And the smaller the streamers, the less people play it. And the less people play it, the less hype it has. You see the bike?
According to the latest streaming industry report from Stream Elements, Apex Legend’s Twitch views have been on a very steady and sharp decline recently. Meanwhile, Fortnite has been very steady and now doubles Apex Legends in average Twitch viewing. In other words, the game once lost by some to finally kill Fortnite does not do a very good job of damaging Fortnite even less kill it.
When ] the Apex Legends launch, its streaming number was significantly above Fortnite but it was because it was new and because EA paid a fine penny for the biggest streamers to play it.
