That means Fortnite (which has pretty much been at the top of the gameplay chart for each platform since early a year ago, only dropping occasionally) is now facing some serious competition from Apex Legends. Just as the Fortnite phenomenon was emote-dancing its way to becoming an untouchable force on the competitive gaming/Twitch throne, Respawn Entertainment pulled a "hold my beer" moment with their new viral hit Apex Legends.

In an official EA blog post, the studio's chief Vince Zampella revealed that since the game's launch, it has raked in 25 million players and has touched a peak 2 million concurrent players in that span. Its marketing no doubt helped, as the combination of a surprise launch and support from top streamers (such as Shroud and Dr DisRespect) made sure that everyone could see how well the game played.

The new video game from industry giant Electronic Arts has been grabbing attention online as it takes on one of the world's most popular games, Epic's Fortnite: Battle Royale.

And Jefferies said Fortnite's viewership on the video game streaming site Twitch was "basically chopped in half" in the days following the Apex release.
