Apex Legends Mobile, which was released in May 2022 and gained a strong momentum with its release, has now come to the end of the road. EA and Respawn announced that the game will be shutting down soon.
Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that the mobile version of the game will be shut down in all regions on May 1, just weeks before its first anniversary. In the statement, it was underlined that there will be no refunds for in-game purchases.
Goodbye to Apex Legends Mobile
Apex Legends Mobile was developed by Lightspeed & Quantum Studios, which we know from Respawn Entertainment and PUBG Mobile. The game made its debut strong, but Respawn says it fell short of the expected quality standard of Apex Legends Mobile in the coming months. On the other hand, in-game purchases have already been closed and the game will be withdrawn from the app stores. The date that Apex Legends Mobile will be unplugged is May 1.
That said, it looks like there might be a new kind of Apex on mobile in the future. EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that EA and development partner Respawn have chosen to discontinue this “version” of the game, and that the company “plans to redesign a connected Apex mobile experience in the future.” Meanwhile, EA is also halting development of the Battlefield mobile game, which it plans to announce in April 2021.
