More and more organizations are getting into Apex Legends. Following the example of NRG Esports and TSM, two more orgs have shown interest in Respawn’s battle royale: Fnatic and 100 Thieves.
25 million in a week? Yeah, pretty impressive, @PlayApex.
Shall we make this an esport then? 🤔

This is a great opportunity for aspiring players, as both orgs are quite storied. Fnatic remains one of the oldest esports brands on the market, with long history in League of Legends and Counter-Strike, specifically. 100 Thieves are also a franchise holder, running their own NA LCS team.
Both orgs are involved in the battle royale genre through Fornite, but to a lesser extent, and lack significant accolades still.
These expansions are certainly to not be the last from major esports orgs. Apex Legends has become the new phenomenon to watch on the gaming market, hitting 25M players in its first week. The game also held the #1 spot on Twitch viewership-wise, surpassed only today with the start of the IEM Katowice Major for CS:GO.
