Apex Legends: EA CEO Confirms Soft Mobile Launch By The End Of The Year

Apex Legends has still maintained its popularity in the battle royale, multiplayer shooter space. It’s no easy feat to wrestle some control away from the behemoth that is Fortnite. However, the folks over at Respawn Entertainment seem to have pulled it off.

Apex Legends Coming To Mobile By The End Of The Year

Now, much like Fortnite, we may also be getting an Apex Legends mobile version. EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that the game will enter the soft launch phase on mobile by the end of the year during an investors call. “We have PvZ 3 (Plants vs Zombies 3) in soft launch, we’ve talked about having Apex Legends in soft launch by the end of this year,” he said.

This shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone. The battle royale genre has done incredibly well on mobile devices. Besides Fortnite itself, we have also seen games like PUBG Mobile and Call Of Duty Mobile occupy a similar space.


Apex Legends Is Also Coming To Switch, Getting Crossplay Support

Bringing Apex Legends’ battle pass to those who play on mobile will most likely end up making them a lot of money, too. It’s a no-brainer. Recent announcements had already indicated to us that EA was looking to expand Apex Legends.

The game is also coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. Until now, it was only available on PS4, Xbox One and PC via Origin and Steam. EA has also opened up Apex Legends for cross-platform multiplayer. We don’t yet know all the details as to how that will work, though.


Apex Legends’ Crossplay Details Aren’t Clear Yet

Call Of Duty Warzone on consoles lets you choose whether you want to play against PC players or not. It’s likely that it will have similar filters. Apex Legends PC players have an inherent advantage since a mouse is simply better for aiming, after all.

I’m most interested in seeing what kind of resolution Apex Legends runs at on mobile. It’s not quite as detailed as Call Of Duty Warzone, but it’s still better than PUBG and Fortnite in terms of graphical fidelity.
