The Apex Legends player count is constantly evolving, especially as the game goes strength to strength with new seasons of content. Apex Legends has been out in the wild for close to three years now, and elements like new maps, modes, and legends have brought players back and ushered others away. But just how popular is Apex Legends in 2021? Here's everything you need to know about the current Apex Legends player count.

Apex Legends Player Count 2021: Total & Concurrent

Earlier in the year, April 2021 to be exact, the official Apex Legends Twitter account announced that the battle royale had surpassed 100 million total players. This was on par with Warzone at the time, which also announced the 100 million milestone just six days later. This was a huge achievement for Apex, especially considering the title wasn't an established IP like Call of Duty. 

 

 

The popularity of the game will certainly be helped by its free-to-play aspect, as well as its availability across PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Switch. Not to mention that every three months a new well of content is offered up to players, with the most recent introducing the games 19th legend, Ash, and fourth map, Stormpoint.

According to Steam Database, the Apex Legends player count peaked at 330,879 players around seven months ago, which would have lined up with the launch of Season 9, Legacy. This season added a brand new round-based mode called Arenas, as well as Valkyrie, a legend directly related to the Titanfall universe. This undoubtedly stirred up a lot of fans, and showed the game's popularity considering it hit its peak two-and-a-half years into its life. All of these months later, the numbers haven't dropped too much.

At the time of writing (around midday on a Tuesday), there were 117,765 players online, with the previous 24 hour peak sitting at 211,393. This increases slightly at the weekend to around 245,769 players on a Saturday. Those are some healthy numbers to say the least.

Apex Legends Player Count: Twitch Viewership Numbers

Apex Legends is always hovering around the top ten of the Twitch charts, showing that the Apex Legends player count extends beyond those that actually play the game. In December 2021, the Apex Legends Twitch viewership peaked at 237,795. This is a depreciation from the previous month of 282,048, however it is natural for numbers to dip after the launch of a new season.

At the time of writing Apex Legends is the eight highest watched category on Twitch according to Twitch Tracker, and has surpassed the likes of Fortnite and Warzone all of which received seasonal updates in the last couple of weeks. With an average of 60,000 weekly viewers, Apex Legends is doing pretty well on the streaming platform as well.

Apex Legends Player Count: Is Apex Legends ‘Dying’?

By looking at all the stats we can find on the Apex Legends player count, the answer to "is Apex Legends dying?", is a big resounding no. The battle royale has seen its most successful year two years after launch.

While interest will have peaks and troughs, as all big games do, Apex Legends will only continue to bring back players with consistent updates and events like the Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event that is currently running. We don't think Apex Legends will be popular forever, but at this stage, it really shows no intention of slowing down.
