Apex Legends hit the world by storm last week, and boy howdy has it not shown any signs of slowing down. It was able to hit 1 million users in just a few hours, and since then, it’s exploded even further in popularity. According to Respawn, Apex Legends now has over 25 million players, with two million people online at any given time. It’s been such a massive and shocking influx of popularity that there have even been server problems. The game has been so popular, in fact, that it’s even bleeding over into Titanfall 2.

Not kidding. According to the forum on Resetera, Titanfall 2’s multiplayer mode got a huge jolt of popularity over the weekend, likely by people who were either reminded of the game due to Apex Legends, or who missed the giant mechas and parkour-style movement that made Titanfall 2’s multiplayer so unique (and is sadly lacking in the hero-style battle royale). On the PS4, around 4000 players logged in to play the once-forgotten multiplayer, while on PC, they had double their usual number of players, jumping up from a 1,200-something average to around 3,500 at its peak.

That’s a not-insignificant jump. And it’s probably pretty damn important that they get revived, because if you’ll recall there’s no Titanfall 3 currently in the works, so people who are looking for this kind of experience are pretty much stuck with what they have.

Still. I think we can all comfortably say we’re surprised that a free-to-play battle royale game from EA would wind up being so astonishingly popular. There’s a lot of reasons for that, but I think at the core it just amounts to the game being a really good game. And that, if nothing else, will keep Respawn alive for a few more years at least.

Although it won’t be long before EA hungers…
