The prospects for Apex Legend’s long-term success have come in recent weeks, but a player has come down with a strong case for why the game does not die yet.
When Apex Legends was first released in early February, many quickly noticed it as the next great feeling in the online game world.
With the battle royal genre by storm, some believed it would be the first game that would truly appear as a legitimate challenger to Fortnite Battle Royale .
However, it has not been so accurate since then, as a disappointing season 1 Battle Pass, lack of consistent updates, and other factors played into the game’s popularity plateauing.
As a result, many have decided that the fate of Apex Legends is sealed, and that the game is to die and intended for the judgment.
Part of the reason that Apex Legends has been hit by popularity is its underwhelming Season 1 Battle Pass.
Why Apex Legends Really Don’t Die
With so much negativity around the game on social media recently, the Reddit user’s “King_Fu_Jedi” has posted a long post that makes a strong case for why the game doesn’t die, despite many people’s claims that it is.
The first point that emerged is how far back it is from Fortnite BR when it comes to Twitch viewership, which the user has chalked up to be a demographic issue.
“It’s simply less adults playing video games than children.” They wrote. “So when people look at the Twitch numbers to try to measure where this game is, they do themselves and everyone else is a great disservice by not thinking about how the majority of those watching games are also mostly children.”  Respawn / Epic Games
The Reddit user claims that the Twitch viewing for Fortnite is much higher than Apex Legends because Fortnite is more targeted to younger people.
The user then picked up the point about how Apex Legends is one of the most played games on. Xbox, which is in front of some very popular and big-name titles.
“Apex sits at the 4th on the most played list on the Xbox,” they wrote. “Past games like Destiny 2, Battlefield V, Division [ 2 ] Overwatch, PUBG and many others. So if Apex dies, it is also some of the most popular games in the industry.”
As for a final comparison with Fortnite BR, users argue that Respawn Entertainment has decided not to overwork its employees to the levels that Epic Games allegedly have.
“We’ve all seen the reports of the crunch time on Epic. Their employees work a little about hours to pump out content as often as they do. And we’ve all seen how Respawn handled this situation and said they want their employees should have a life outside feeding their players with new content every week. “
When is it time for Apex Legends players to worry about
All that is said, there must be a point to which Apex Legends fans and players must start worrying about their game slipping too far behind the competition.
The Reddit user felt that the players would start to panic in season 2 and its beatings ended up being a failure.
“Now is not the time to panic. In season 2 bombs then and then, the word should be open for discussion on how they could improve a game that everyone loves to complain about. This game does not have to be the one most popular thing ever to happen in the history of the universe for it to be a success. “
