Respawn Entertainment is following the footsteps of other popular battle-royale genre games and is currently working on the mobile version of Apex Legends. The news was announced by the game’s publisher Electronic Arts during an EA conference call on May 7th. Additionally, the publisher is working hard to launch the game in China.
Andrew Wilson, the CEO of Electronic Arts, said that the company is excited about the future of Apex Legends
“Engagement is strong, and we have big plans for the Legends and the world they compete in. We’re 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.” – said the CEO of EA.
In fact, Apex Legends on mobile doesn’t come as a big surprise since its biggest competitors (Fortnite and PUBG) also have mobile editions which bring their developers’ an even larger sum of money than their PC and console counterparts.
However, it’s too early to say if the mobile version of the game will be developed by Respawn Entertainment. EA could be negotiating with a third party developer or publisher to bring Apex Legends to Chinese markets and mobile. It’s a very likely scenario since Respawn Entertainment already has their hands full with the upcoming Apex Legends content as well as with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launch.
