Apex Legends Season 2 was billed to be running away with the games success, but so far, it has failed to meet expectations as a competitor to Fortnite.
Season 2, which launched on July 2 and is named Battle Charge, which changed the Kings Canyon map with the destructive arrival of Leviathans and Flyers. The new season also introduced the new character, Wattson, alongside an improved Battle Pass and more legendary items.
Season 2 has appeared to have failed to attract Twitch viewership. Apex Legends hit a peak of about 674,000 daily viewers in its launch month of February, but the game has so far been unable to breach 50,000 daily viewers since Season 2 started.
The trend of declining monthly average viewership for Apex Legends has so far been broken in July with an average of about 35,000 daily viewers, but in comparison, Fortnite has an average of about 104,000 daily viewers in the month.
Some of the issues that players have reported with Season 2 involve Wattson. A bug in the character’s electric fences is apparently revealing her location to opponents, and a few other players have had trouble in redeeming the Twitch Prime Wattson skin.
It is worth saying that is still the early days for Apex Legends Season 2, and it is possible to look too much into early day Twitch views, as Season 2 is still new, it makes sense giving the title a chance to gather more momentum.
