Who developed Apex Legends? The free-to-play battle royale took the world by storm, racking up 1 million unique players in the first eight hours when it first released back in February of last year.

The game eventually cooled off and hit a bit of a downturn during the release of Season 1 and 2 which were poorly received. While Season 2 was definitely an upgrade from Season 1, the lack of new content was difficult to overcome. The map was only slightly changed, and Apex Legends lacked the innovative content Fortnite was all about. Then Season 3 came along.

Who Developed Apex Legends?

Apex Legends was built and developed by Respawn Entertainment, the game studio responsible for Titanfall in 2014 and Titanfall 2 in 2016. The studio was created in 2010, when Activision fired Infinity Ward president Jason West and CEO and co-founder Vince Zampella.

Electronic Arts acquired Respawn Entertainment in 2017 after publishing both Titanfall games, and is now publishing Apex Legends. The new battle royale game is the ​successor to the Titanfall series.
