Without further ado, let’s dive into the subject.
Apex Legends became a surprise hit on PC as well as console and brought around 25 million from around the world in just the first few weeks. While the game is a huge hit for PC and console, EA is trying to bring a mobile version of Apex Legends that will compete with games like Fortnite and PUBG in the mobile space.
Following the release of Apex Legends, Andrew Wilson – the CEO of EA – discussed the possibility of a mobile version in an investors call and stated:
“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.”
The company may have financial incentives to release a mobile version of the game; however, the game is graphically more demanding than its competitors, and we can only hope that it won’t have any graphical issues on the current high-end mobile sets.
