EA Paid Ninja $1 Million To Stream Apex Legends

EA Paid Ninja $1 Million To Stream Apex Legends

How handsomely? According to Reuters, EA shelled out a cool million bucks (or thereabouts) for Ninja to stream Apex Legends on launch day. It's definitely not a strategy affordable for every company - and not necessarily one that will fit every game - but paying these streamers likely cost less than the traditional TV advert while arguably reaching a more appropriate audience. In particular, EA supposedly approached Ninja with a massive deal, offering $1 million in exchange for coverage.

People are always wondering just how money popular Twitch streamers like Ninja are making from their sponsors and now, we finally have a number. For more information and news about Apex Legends, visit the game's website.

We would also guess that Respawn will avoid deploying such a big change during the weekend.

So while we can't predict an exact date for the new announcement to land, we can watch out for warning signs and certain days to keep an eye out.

Apex Legends is a really good game that seemed to come out of nowhere: One minute we're speculating about a Titanfall battle royale, and the next it draws 2.5 million players in its very first day.

He continued to stream and tweet about Apex Legends until about February 19, 2019, prior to his weekend vacation in LA. Shroud alluded to aiding in the game's development as a consultant, but he didn't disclose the terms of his compensation. Apparently so-Apex Legends notched 1 million players in the first 8 hours after launch, and exploded to 50 million players in its first month. Many fans appreciate that the developers say at least directly that you do not need to reckon with the update at least today, on March 12th.
