The latest battle royalegame to take the fancy of people worldwide — Apex Legends — may come to the mobile platform soon. Electronic Arts, the publisher of Apex Legends, is looking at cross-platform play, and also a mobile version of the battle royale game.
This was confirmed as per a transcript of EA’s earnings call obtained by financial advisory firm Motley Fool.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in question regarding Apex Legends: “As I said earlier, we are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time, and I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we’re in conversations about that.”
Apex Legends may come to your smartphone in November
YouTuber Mr Ghost Gaming, in one of the videos, says that the mobile version of Apex Legends would launch in November this year on both Android and iOS. The video also claims the the game would support Android v5.0.1 Lollipop and above and that the minimum RAM requirement of the game would be 3GB. However, the CPU and GPU requirements are not known yet. In the video, it is claimed that more information about the mobile version would be revealed in July.
Apex Legends, since its launch, has been quickly adding players to its fan base. Within 8 hours of its launch, the game had 1 million unique players, a number that stands at 50 million after one month. Considering these figures for a game that had only been launched on console and PC, it was being expected that being a free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends would be introduced to the mobile platform also. It has been a smash hit, no doubt about that, but if it launches on Android and iOS too, PUBG and Fortnite have a lot to prepare for.
