Ever since EA and Respawn confirmed the release of its uber-popular battle royale game Apex Legends on mobile platforms back in 2020, players were eagerly waiting for its official release amidst closed beta tests and delayed soft launches over the past two years. Apex Legends Mobile finally released globally earlier this month, and it has been a great success in the market. Now, according to reports, Apex Mobile earned $4.8 million in revenue within the first seven days of its release. Check out the details below to find out more!
Apex Legends Mobile Earns $4.8 Million in 7 Days
Apex Legends Mobile, prior to its official release on May 17, garnered 15 million pre-registrations globally, hinting at the massive hype around the title amongst mobile gamers. Last week, a Sensor Tower report stated that the title became the most-downloaded mobile battle royale game in 60 countries. It even dethroned BGMI from the top spot on the App Store in India.
Now, according to recent reports, Apex Legends mobile earned $4.8 million in revenue from players within the first week of its global release. The earnings came from in-game purchases by players, especially Syndicate Gold points that allow them to unlock the new mobile-exclusive legend Fade. Other revenue sources for Apex Legends include the “Prime Time” Battle Pass, the in-game store, and cosmetic items such as gun and legend skins.
So, the first-week earnings of Apex Legends Mobile are definitely not bad but less than the first-week earnings of COD Mobile as the latter earned a whopping $14.8 million within the first seven days of its release back in 2019. However, it is worth noting that Apex Legends Mobile earned significantly more than PUBG Mobile’s first-week earnings of $600,000. Going forward, EA and Respawn are expected to introduce more legends (characters), new battle passes, and other in-game events to boost the revenue streams of the title.
