T1 Esports will first focus on a title that’s just a couple months old: Apex Legends. In the first month since its February launch, Apex Legends set an opening-month record in revenue for free-to-play games with an estimated $92 million from in-game spending across all platforms, according to SuperData.
“We are always looking for the next big game,” said Joe Marsh, the chief business officer of Spectacor Gaming. “With battle-royale games in the forefront, we thought Apex made a lot of sense. It’s a great mix between Fortnite, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Call of Duty.”
