Ever since its release in February 2019 Apex legends has become one of the leading free-to-play battle royale games on PC and Console, challenging the likes of Fortnite and PUBG for the top battle royale spot. One advantage those titles had over Apex legends was that they each had a dedicated mobile version of their game available to download. That all changed in May of this year when EA confirmed they will be bringing the Apex Legends experience to mobiles everywhere, but no exact date was given until now.
EA’s Chief Executive, Andrew Wilson confirmed during the company’s most recent earning call in October that Apex legends will be releasing on mobile. However, mobile gamers will still have to wait quite a while before they get the chance enter the battle arena, as the game won’t be launched until the fiscal year of 2021, which begins on October 1, 2020. This means that gamers will have to wait until at least October 2020 before they’ll be able to download the game.
”With the Apex Legends community now growing past 70-million players, we’re focused on expanding to mobile new platforms and new geographies, as well as launching an Apex competitive gaming program that we’ll share details on soon,” Wilson said during the 2019 earnings call.
After the success of other mobile games like PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile, it should come as no surprise that EA has decided to invest in a mobile version of Apex Legends, although it’s unclear if Apex Legends mobile game will support cross-platform play like it’s console and PC counterparts do.
