EA’s Apex Legends May Be Retreating After a Hot Start

David Marino-Nachison

Fewer people seem to be watching streams of (EA)’ (EA) new battler Apex Legends since its hot start. In a Tuesday note, Cowen analyst Doug Creutz cited viewer data from (AMZN)-owned (AMZN) game streaming service Twitch by way of noting that initial enthusiasm for Apex Legends has dropped since its introduction last month while other games appear to be recovering. The Fortnite-targeting Apex Legends was a surprise launch from EA, and it was released just before its last quarterly financial results were announced.
