Apex Legends Mobile Closes in May After Quitting the Fight
- Feb 01, 2023
Popular battle royale game Apex Legends is closing its mobile version in May. The closure of the mobile version of the game comes after the publisher Electronic Arts (EA) announced that the game was no longer in active development.
EA and Tencent had been working on creating a mobile version of Apex Legends for a while before the announcement of the news. In early 2020, the two companies announced that they were working on the mobile version of the game. However, the game was never released, and now it appears that EA has decided to abandon the project.
The end of the mobile version of Apex Legends reflects the wider pattern of mobile games vanishing due to an absence of popularity or resources. Many popular mobile titles, such as Clash of Clans and Boom Beach, have shut down in recent years due to a lack of interest or resources. It appears that Apex Legends was unable to find enough support to keep its mobile version running.
EA also recently announced that it was shutting down the mobile version of its popular shooter, Titanfall. EA declared that they did not have enough resources to make the game profitable, which resulted in it never being released. It seems the mobile version of Apex Legends has met the same destiny.
It is regrettable that Apex Legends' mobile version has been shut down, leaving its fans disappointed. The game was never released, and it appears that EA and Tencent were unable to find enough resources to make the game a success. Fans of the game will have to stick with the console, and PC versions of the game for their Apex Legends fix.
