Respawn Wants Apex Legends To Last For Two Decades

"Like Counterstrike"

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game that was released in February 2019, and ever since its release, the game has gained a lot of popularity and received highly positive feedback worldwide.

Even though the game has been out for almost 4 years, it is still going strong and is anticipated to continue doing so for a while, given how well the developers have kept gamers interested.

Evan Nikolich, Senior Design Director for Respawn Entertainment, recently stated in an interview with IGN that while Respawn might eventually be moving on from Apex Legends in the future, he wants the game to last as long as Counter-Strike for 20 years. He stated,

“Where we want to get to is that Apex is going to last for 20 years like Counterstrike.”

Evan Nikolich further stated that to maintain its popularity like Counter-Strike, Respawn needs to leave Apex Legends in a position where it is self-sufficient and stands on its own.

He states that, 

“The systems have to be strong and interesting and good for players to play season over season, even if we’re not adding new bespoke content.”

We don’t know if Respawn could pull off something as significant as Counter-Strike. Still, only time will tell if they can, as the developers of Counter-Strike have done such a tremendous job with their games, so much so that recently CS: GO, released 11 years ago, broke its concurrent players record on Steam, hitting 1.3 million players.

We are excited and looking forward to the future of Apex Legends. This is the limited information we have for now, but we will be looking for more news regarding Apex Legends in the future.
