One thing that makes Fortnite so popular is its accessibility. From being available on every platform under the sun – including mobile – to its limitless cross-platform capabilities, Epic Games’ battle royale experience has quite the reach, but it looks like Respawn is catching up because an Apex Legends mobile game is in the works.
EA confirmed the news that a mobile version of the game is on the way, much like that of PUBG MOBILE and Fortnite. In their latest financial report, EA mentioned “We’re also working aggressively to bring the game to more players in more markets and platforms around the world. We are still at the very beginning of this exciting journey with Apex Legends, and we look forward to sharing more as we go — including the first details of Season 2 at EA PLAY in June.
“We are in advanced negotiations to bring Apex Legends to China and to mobile, and we will update you on time frames when those negotiations are concluded.”
With EA Play dropping just next month, it will be interesting to see what’s next for the Respawn battle royale title. Though it was met with instant success upon launch, interest quickly dwindled after the Battle Pass was revealed. The most common complaint was that it was lack-luster in terms of content, especially comparatively with other similar games, though Respawn did mention that that was by design.
Instead of weekly updates like Fortnite, the most drastic changes will come by season, which we’ll be learning more about season 2 during EA Play in June.
As for the game itself, Apex Legends is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
