EA reportedly paid $1 million to have Ninja stream Apex Legends

'They're just rumours, innit' say Apex Legends developers on datamining

With Apex Legends proving so popular, fans have been searching through the game files every time a new update is released. Yes, you read that correctly - $1,000,000.00 was paid to Ninja to stream himself playing Apex Legends.

"We really wanted to create a day where you couldn't escape Apex if you cared about games and we wanted it to feel like an event was happening everywhere around the globe on that day", said Apex Legends lead producer Drew McCoy. It's not coming out today.

The amount underlines the increasingly cut-throat fight for dominance of the free-to-play battle royale genre that, through Epic Games' global smash hit "Fortnite", has pushed major publishers like Electronic Arts to change how they do business.

EA's expensive ploy seemed to work: over 10 million gamers signed up to play Apex Legends in its first three days on release and, as we reported, the game powered past the 50 million-player mark less than a month after release. We know this stuff is fun to dig up and speculate about, but you should not treat any of that info as a source of truth.Finding this stuff by no means confirms that it'll ever come out. Although EA refused to comment on the exact amount, an inside source confirmed to Reuters that the sum Tyler received was that $1 million jackpot, nearly double the streamer's average monthly income (reported to be around $500,000 a month, split between YouTube, Twitch and sponsorship deals).

Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight.

One thing we can be nearly certain of is that Season 1 will coincide with the release of a brand new Legend called Octane. Octane is also said to regenerate health when not in battle.
