How other games fared on the platform, compared to Apex Legends
The recent success being enjoyed by Apex Legends on Twitch can be attributed to Warzone’s worsening reputation in the community. The last several months have been tumultuous for Activision’s reputed Battle Royale game. Cheaters have plagued the game, and despite their best attempts, the developers have been unable to eliminate the problem.
Even the most loyal fans of the title have abandoned it as a result of this. Several high-profile streamers have left to seek brighter pastures in the game as a result of this issue. Tim “TimTheTatman” Betar, a regular Call of Duty Warzone streamer, and Jack “CouRage” Dunlop have found more lucrative alternatives.
While Warzone and PUBG have done exceptionally well on Twitch in recent years, the games have seen a significant drop in popularity. Apex Legends has 247 million hours, Fortnite has 246, while Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has 240.
