About Apex Legends Mobile:

First, many already hooked to PC, PlayStation and Xbox One console versions would ask, why Apex Legends for mobile?

Well, this is a reasonable question to ask and the answer is compelling indeed. So let me shed some light on it.

All leading indicators confirm that mobile gaming is on the rise. This trend will continue to surge upwards in 2021 and beyond. Already 50 percent of the global video game revenue is generated through mobile games.

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

In recent years, we have witnessed an increasing array of established game developers embracing the mobile gaming arena.

For instance, world-renowned titles such as Genshin Impact, Diablo Immortal, Pokemon Unite, PUBG: New State, 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.

Considering all the recent developments, it stands to reason for EA to announce that Apex Legends mobile is nearing its global launch in not too distant future.

Apex Legends Mobile Release Update:

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.

If reports pan out as claimed by various sources, it seems like a no-brainer to initiate the rollout of the mobile version from China. Exclude China’s massive market from your target audience at your peril; especially when it comes to mobile platforms.

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 News Roundup:

Regrettably, the spokesperson balked at disclosing the name of EA’s Chinese collaborator in the statement. Most guesses allude to Tencent securing the game rights, which is unsurprising when taking into account that the company already boasts a successful track record with PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Tencent has established itself as a highly regarded name in the mobile sphere. Its stake in innovative game titles such as Supercell’s Clash of Clans highlights the financial prowess of the company.

Depending on the plan of action EA decides to pursue, the launch of the mobile version of Apex Legends has the potential to shake things up for the better in the battle royale genre

The Apex Legends mobile gameplay may not diverge much from the familiar battle royale concept. That said, the developer holds a few unique tricks up its sleeve. The addition of exclusive characters combined with unique skill sets could entice more players to join mobile Apex Legends.

The game’s release in a Q3 or Q4 holiday season 2021 is almost certain if the development process remains on course.
