It’s official, Apex Legends has managed to slow down Fortnite’s one-year streak as Twitch’s most watched game.
However, the debut of season 8 of Fortnite points to the comeback of Epic Games.
Throughout 2018, Fortnite has received almost unanimous attention from the Twitch community. And just when it seemed that the battle royale genre no longer allowed more space, Apex Legends arrived to turn everything upside down. Of course, since its premiere EA and Respawn have been able to take full advantage of its astronomical number of players and spectators of Twitch, but it has not been until today when we have been able to verify the real impact that Apex Legends has had in February on the platform of most popular retransmission.
At its premiere, Apex Legends managed to break Fortnite’s streak as Twitch’s most watched game during the past twelve months. It marked a peak of 670,000 simultaneous viewers, surpassing the peak of 615,000 that the Epic Games game had. The analysis of GitHyp also explains that Apex Legends’ average display during February was 212,000 spectators per hour, rising with the crown above League of Legends and Fortnite with 126,000, which is 29% less than the figures He looked the previous month.
Has Apex Legends finally conquered Fortnite’s throne on Twitch? It seems that no: despite its overwhelming premiere, the season 8 of Fortnite has returned to Epic Games to the number 1 spot in attention with figures similar to those of January (175,000 per hour), and has relegated Apex to the third position from the top with 41% of the visualizations he had in his first days of life.
