Apex Legends Mobile might finally become a reality, as EA plans to soft launch the game in the next four months, according to EA’s Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen. The game was originally slated for a 2020 launch, although it was delayed to late 2021 in November.
While much of Apex Legends Mobile remains a mystery, it’s great to finally hear more news about the upcoming title. The quarterly earnings call this week confirmed that the mobile port is still in development – and is almost ready for the public.
“We believe mobile Apex will be in soft launch sometime in the next three to four months and hopefully gets into the marketplace quickly,” Blake Jorgensen said during the call. “Obviously, it will take longer to get into the market in China because of some of the regulatory issues. But in the rest of the world, we don’t see those issues happening. But we also want to make sure it is the exact product that we want. I think the team is very dedicated to making sure the product is the perfect product for a global market.”
Until then, players can get their mobile Apex Legends fix with the upcoming Switch version. Officially revealed as a March 9 release, a big reason for the Switch port is due to the game’s popularity in Japan. Nintendo Switch is wildly popular in the region, and getting a popular game onto a popular console is a simple business move.
Apex Legends Mobile is scheduled to soft launch in the next four months.
