It’s very hard to have a hit game in today’s world without a lot of buildup. And yet, that’s exactly what Apex Legends is doing. It came out of nowhere, wasn’t what players expected it to be, and yet, it’s got over 25 million registered accounts so far, and positive reviews galore. Respawn Entertainment made a hit title once again, and they are feeling the love of the community. To that end, they went to Reddit to thank the community and give them a look at what’s coming next.
First up, the Community Manager for their Subreddit forum gave thanks to the players:
“I wish I could respond to each and every one of you but it’s physically impossible,” he mentioned. “For context: I currently have nearly 6K responses and over 50 message requests in my inbox, and that’s just this subreddit. Trust me when I say that myself, and many folks on the team are here reading your posts and it’s been the best feeling seeing our baby out in the wild and taking on a life of its own through you.”
The Community Manager also promises that when it comes to Apex Legends, the game will be updated frequently, and much feedback will be taken by the community. Here’s some things he outlined:
- We’re going to start doing more regular updates like this moving forward. I’ll be making posts daily starting Tuesday next week. Not all of these will be ground breaking or major news but think of it as our way of checking in each day to address what we can.
- Livestreams! As we speak, a production team is building a rad soundstage and set right here at Respawn. I can’t wait to get it up and running and start putting on shows with the team. We will debut our first developer stream around the launch of Season 1.
- With the permission of you all and the mod team, I’d like to have a dedicated spot here where I can provide a list of troubleshooting tips for some issues folks are having.
- Couple more things in the works that we’ll talk about more in the near future.
Looks like the games future is assured. For now anyway.
