Since its launch back on February 4, Apex Legends has seen incredible growth, reaching 50 million total players just a month after its release.
While Ninja was allegedly paid $1 million to play Apex Legends on it’s release, the streamer has revealed that his focus will be mainly on one of Respawn’s biggest battle royale rivals, Fortnite.
Blevins has long been considered to be the face of Fortnite, and while the streamer has made a name for himself from his hilarious streams, he also aims to be a star in it’s competitive community too.
When asked by a viewer if he would be switching to Apex on his Monday, March 18 stream, Ninja stated: “I am not done with Apex [Legends], man. I’m just going to be focusing on the Fortnite World Cup.”
While the streamer has stated that his focus will now be on Fortnite, he will still occasionally play Apex Legends, as confirmed by his wife, Jess 'Ghosty' Blevins.
Ninja will be hopping back into King's Canyon on Tuesday, March 19 when Apex Legend's Season 1 kicks off.
Ninja has been practising on Fortnite with an aim to compete in the upcoming $30 million World Cup Finals, which take place in New York City on July 26 to 28.
Blevins hopes to earn a spot at the major tournament, with the qualification process kicking off on April 13.
