EA allegedly paid Ninja and Shroud an insane amount of money to play Apex Legends

EA unleashed their marketing powers by paying out huge amounts of money for popular streamers to play Apex Legends.

Apex Legends launched as a surprise on February 4 and quickly took over Twitch viewership, becoming one of the most popular games on the platform.

Ninja, Shroud and other top streamers switched over from battle royale games like Fortnite, PUBG and Blackout to give Apex a chance.


How much did it cost? Reuters is now reporting that Ninja was paid $1 million to play and promote Apex Legends.

Shroud was also paid to play the game, though the same source would not divulge how much.

Apex Legends quickly established itself in the battle royale genre, gaining 10 million players during its launch week, growing to over 50 million with current estimates.

Up next for the popular title is a March content update, which will include new characters, cosmetics and other items – and possibly another round of “ApexPartners.”
