Apex is supercharging EA's live service business. The F2P battle royale titan has now made over $1 billion from microtransaction earnings faster than EA had originally expected. The game actually hit the milestone with half a quarter to spare, EA says.

"Apex Legends had extraordinary performance in live service revenues in FY22, with 12 million DAUs," EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said.

Apex delivered its largest net booking quarter on record in Q4 with 12 million DAUs during the period, contributing strongly to the $1.3 billion EA earned from live services during the quarter. All-told, Apex made $600 million in Fiscal Year 2021. Apex is so big that it made 13% of EA's annual live service revenues of $4.592 billion.

"Apex has driven a huge change in our live services business. In fourth quarter alone YoY it's up over 100%," Jorgensen said.

EA expects Apex to strongly contribute to its FY2022 forecasts which predicts huge records of $7 billion+ net revenues.
