Esports organizations are beginning to bet big on Apex Legends. Not only has Team Liquid shifted their blackout team into an Apex Legends squad, but Team Solomid, Gen G, NRG, and 100 Thieves have all recently announced Apex Squads. After Blackout dropped, a bunch of teams signed rosters to compete but Activision made clear pretty early on they didn’t intend to support the esports scene for blackout mode. Respawn, on the other hand, has said they fully intend to back their esports scene around Apex Legends. So far, we’ve only seen two tournaments in the form of the Twitch rivals events shortly after launch.
