It is unlikely that someone from the game community will be surprised by the fact that Apex Legends is one of the most successful games of 2019, but there are more specific numbers that show the correct choice of the distribution way.
According to analysts from SuperData Research, Apex Legends Battle Royale shooter earned $92 million last month, with most of the revenue for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
This result was the most successful launch of a shareware product in the history of video games. Epic Games has achieved a similar indicator with Fortnite in only four months.
As for the preferences of the personal computer audience, Dungeon Fighter Online, League of Legends, Crossfire and Fortnite remain in the leading positions, but Dota 2 and World of Tanks are already lagging in profitability.
Also, there is information that Anthem's action-RPG earned more than $100 million in a month (in-game purchases brought EA only $3.5 million).
But things are bad for the collectable card game Hearthstone now, as the profit from the project decreased by 52% last month. The leader was a multiplayer action-RPG Dungeon Fighter Online in terms of revenue on a PC, and FIFA 19 on consoles.
The games market earned $8.2 billion in February in total.
The developers of Respawn Entertainment are continually adding new content to the game, for example, a couple of days ago a new Octane character was added.
