I am curious what the response to this will be as some may say that the interest in the game has peaked and come back to reality after lofty early numbers.

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment Announce 

Apex Legends Preseason Invitational from September 13-15

 

First Official EA and Respawn Organized Competition to Feature 80 Teams 

 

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 30, 2019 – Today, Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) and Respawn Entertainment announced the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational, a large scale esports tournament featuring the largest collection of competitive talent ever for an Apex Legends event. Held September 13-15 in Kraków, Poland, 80 teams (three players per team) from around the world will compete in a bracketed tournament for a prize pool of US$500,000.

 

“When we started the EA Competitive Gaming Division, we had a vision to Make Stars of All Our Players as we build an entertainment spectacle that captivates millions of players and spectators,” said Todd Sitrin, SVP and GM of the EA Competitive Gaming Division. “Today we officially expand EA Competitive Gaming through the addition of Apex Legends, owner of one of the biggest game launches in history that continues to be powered today by a passionate global community. The Apex Legends Preseason Invitational is the key next step in our esports journey.” 

 

“Competition is in the DNA of Apex Legends and this competitive event will showcase the game at its highest-level,” said Chad Grenier, Design Director at Respawn Entertainment. “This Apex Legends Preseason Invitational advances our vision towards a robust competitive experience with the community at the center. We continue to explore all the entertaining ways both players and spectators can experience Apex Legends and look forward to bringing this event to life.”

 

All teams will begin the double elimination tournament in the winners bracket. In each round, a team’s performance in a set of matches will determine whether they continue in the winners bracket, fall to the losers bracket, or are eliminated from the tournament until the final 20 teams compete for the title.

 

Teams can apply for an invite to the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational by emailing ApexLegendsPreseason@ea.com and including their Origin ID and associated email address.
