Here’s everything you need to know.

Apex Legends was released on February 4, 2019, for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. The immense popularity made developers think about adding new platforms, and the game was ported to Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021. 

With the rise in popularity on consoles, Respawn Entertainment opted for a mobile version. The pocket-sized Apex Legends was released on March 17, 2022, globally, after months of teasing fans. For some regions, it was released a day earlier on March 16 due to timezone.
