Why Apex Legends For Mobile?

This is a reasonable question to ask. And the answer is pretty compelling.

Here’s why:

Mobile gaming is on the rise. This trend will continue upward in 2021 and beyond. Already 50 percent of the global video game revenue is generated through mobile games.

It seems people like the convenience of picking up a handheld device to play their favorite titles anywhere anytime.

Recent years have seen an incredible upsurge in PC and console game developers bringing their titles into the mobile gaming arena.

World-renowned games such as Genshin Impact, Diablo Immortal, Pokemon Unite, and Fortnite have amassed a huge player base on the mobile platform.

Even the creators of revered non-mobile game series including League of Legends, DOTA2, and Legends of Runeterra have launched mobile versions with LOL Mobile, Dota Underlords, and LoR Mobile respectively.

When you consider all the recent developments it makes sense for EA to announce that Apex Legends mobile is something that the company is pondering over in earnest.

Apex Legends Mobile Release Update:

We have not heard anything concrete coming out of the company regarding the release date. EA is keeping all the information about the confirmation of the Apex Legends launch on mobile platforms tightly under wraps.

However, an EA spokesperson has come forward with a statement that the company has sealed a deal to partner with a developer for the game’s release in China:

Rolling mobile out in China, you need to have a partner, and we’re—as we’ve said in the prepared remarks today—we’re working with a partner there, and we’re very excited about the opportunity … That partner is also helping us develop a mobile Apex for the globe—more to come on that in terms of timing.

All channels linked to EA and Respawn are mute over the matter and yet to divulge information about the endeavor.

That said, if reports are true, starting the rollout of the mobile version from China is a no-brainer. Exclude China’s massive market from your target audience at your peril; especially when it comes to mobile.

Having said that, Chinese laws dictate that a foreign company must collaborate with a local partner to release their products in the country. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the reason behind Apex Legends Mobile’s delay has something to do with its China launch.

Apex Legends Mobile Chinese Version Roundup:

Regrettably, the spokesperson balked at disclosing the name of EA’s Chinese collaborator in the statement.

Most guesses point toward Tencent, which is unsurprising when you come to think of it that this is the company behind highly successful launches of PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Tencent is a respectable name in the mobile sphere with a stake in successful game titles such as Supercell’s Clash of Clans.

What route EA chooses to take as it plans for Apex Legends mobile has the potential to shake things up for the better in the battle royale genre on mobile platforms.

The Apex Legends mobile gameplay may not diverge much from the familiar battle royale concept. However, the developer does hold a few unique tricks up its sleeves in the form of exclusive characters and their unique skillsets to entice new players while captivating the attention of existing ones.

We could see the release in a Q3 or Q4 holiday season 2021 if all else goes according to the plan.
