Apex Legends Mobile is currently being developed and is probably going to fill the recently created gap in the battle royale genre for iPhone and iPad users when Fortnite left App Store.
Apex Legends was supposed to arrive on Android and iOS by the end of 2020 but a recent leak suggests that this won’t be happening until late 2021. While Nintendo has confirmed that Respawn Entertainment is all prepped up to bring Apex Legends to its Switch console in fall 2021, Android and iOS users will have to wait a little longer.
Apex Legends Mobile Crossplay
Did you know that crossplay was recently added to Apex Legends? You will be able to play with your friends no matter which platform they are on. With crossplay, mouse, and keyboard support for Apex Legends on Xbox One and PS4 is also just around the corner. Crossplay can be disabled from ‘Settings’ if you feel like you are getting killed more readily than you used to. Yeah! PC players have a huge advantage with mouse and keyboard when it comes to shooters.
Respawn Entertainment had plans to port Apex Legends to mobile and enable cross-play across all platforms by the end of 2020 but since the next-gen consoles are out now, the company must have had to shift their entire focus on polishing the experience on PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, fans can rest assured that the release date won’t be pushed any further than September 2022. In addition to that, Covid 19 also slowed things down at the studio and the release date was bound to be pushed further.

Apex Legends Mobile Expected Release Date
Apex Legends is currently in beta for Android and iOS devices. You can pre-register for beta access on Google Play Store.
