Apex Legends may go mobile to battle Fortnite

Apex Legends may go mobile to battle Fortnite

After coming up short, EA's CEO Andrew Wilson called it a "difficult quarter". "As any animal lover knows, this was a crushing blow to my morale and made many days hard to come to work".

As it turns out, Apex Legends may be set in the Titanfall universe, but no one's going to confuse it for the series' next big installment (even though it's set 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2, there are no actual titans, for starters.) Tons of digital ink have been spilled since the game's February 4 launch over EA's decision to set developer Respawn in charge of anything other than a direct sequel to 2016's critically adored Titanfall 2 - and now, it seems, EA and Respawn are listening.

Would you like Apex Legends on mobile? "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", Wilson said.

In 72 hours, over 10 million players played Apex Legends. Given how EA has repeatedly said that this is a "premium" game, that rules out this being a small, indie-ish title.

"When you and your friends link up accounts by clicking the button above, we'll be able to find your Steam friends and add them to your list of friends in Apex Legends". A new Titanfall first-person shooter but one that's directly Titanfall 3 but will be set in the same universe?

Note that if you do get an invite from within Steam, you'll still need to download the Origin client to download and play Apex Legends. And so you can see very clearly as you watch and you play the game, that there are going to be opportunities to take the game in different directions over time. esports will nearly certainly be part of that additional game modes, the impact of additional legends over time, great view content will have an impact.
