Apex Legends only launched a month ago and has already been played by 50 million people, according to Respawn's Vince Zampella. It's strange to think that only a handful of weeks ago most of us had never even heard of it, and it definitely feels like it's been around for a lot longer.

In that time, players have used 158 million finishers (I wonder if it includes all the ones I tried to do before being killed mid-finisher), 1.23 billion ultimates, placed 31 billion pings and respawned 170 million times.

The astronomical numbers aren't entirely surprising, though. From the moment it launched, it started drawing in a crowd. In its first day it had 2.5 million players. That grew to 10 million players after 72 hours. And by the end of its first week, more than 25 million people had duked it out on the island.
