Apex Legends player count in 2024

Apex Legends is a top game in 2024. According to Steam Charts, the game is the fourth-most played following PUBG, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike 2. The numbers on Nintendo Switch are not as known but this would put the player count even higher despite abysmal ratings on that console.

In January, the peak player count reached over 344,000 and the average player count was 146,000. This actually went up even higher in February, reaching a peak of 469,000 and an average of 185,000. In March, it was around the same, with 463,000 peak players and an average of 189,000.

For April, or the last 30 days, there was an average player count of 188,720 and peak players reaching 463,965. This shows a pretty steady player count this past year. And it probably won’t be slowing down any time soon.
