SuperData: Apex Legends Had Its Best Month In A While, With $45 Million In September
Apex Legends has slowed down considerably since its big surprise launch in February. SuperData has been tracking its decline, which included "only" $16 million in revenue in September, but that trend appears to have reversed itself, at least temporarily.
In its latest report, the market research firm reports that Apex Legends brought in $45 million in October, or about half of what EA's FIFA Ultimate Team mode has made since February. The game only appears at #9 on the console list, well behind Destiny 2 at #3 and Fortnite at #6.
Over on the PC side of things, well-known -- at least in the West -- free-to-play games claim #1 (League of Legends), #7 (Fortnite), #8 (World of Tanks), and #10 (Roblox). We'll also point out that Lineage M is at #8 on the mobile list and that NCSoft's mobile titles bring in more than all their other games combined. Just a little food for thought.
