As part of their quarterly earnings report, publisher EA have admitted that they are currently working on bringing Apex Legends to mobile devices, as well as to expand the game’s availability to China and South Korea.
“We’re in advanced negotiations with China and mobile”, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgenson stated in the call.
No news on which devices in particular, but you’d expect iOS and Android simultaneously or one shortly after the other, just like Fortnite.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment and set in the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends had huge success at launch in February and snaffled up fifty million players in no time at all. Many speculated that it would be seriously strong battle royale competition for Fortnite: the mac daddy of them all.
However, after countless server issues, cheaters, bugs, a relative lack of content updates, and a truly terrible Battle Pass, the playerbase for Apex has dwindled somewhat. No exact numbers to report, but it only tends to get any interest on Twitch nowadays if Shroud streams it.
Would you be interested in Apex on mobile? I would be very intrigued to see how they condense it, especially as it doesn’t run that hot generally at the minute.
Apex Legends is free to download now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
