Popular shooter Apex Legends is coming soon to Android and iOS, EA boss reveals
EA’s attempt to take a slice from the battle royale pie took the world by storm but has since slightly diminished in popularity. But that might change once the game is available to billions of mobile gamers. And now we have a rough timeframe of when that might happen.
During a conference call, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson said “We’ve talked about having Apex Legends in soft launch by the end of the year.” The statement was quickly picked up by @ApexLatest on Twitter.

Seeing how we’re almost through with June, that means that in just a few months, we might be enjoying Apex Legends on our smartphones. The game is free to play on consoles and PC and that will likely be the case on mobile as well.
Apex Legends comes from Respawn Entertainment, the studio responsible for the Titanfall series. In the game, you take the role of one of 13 (currently) Legends, each with a unique set of skills. The rest is more or less standard battle royale gameplay: you jump from an aircraft, search for weapons and other loot and try to remain the last one standing.
Well, soon we’ll be able to do all that on our phones, if EA’s CEO is to be believed. We’re excited to give it a try!
