We have talked about Apex Legends so much lately. Since its surprise release of February 4th 2019, EA and Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale FPS hit has taken the front page of every gaming websites and magazines in the world. And now, chances are that we will even see that name more when there are hints from EA that there will be an official mobile version for Apex Legends.

The game now only available for players in PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. However, in the latest earnings conference call for the company, Mr. Andrew Wilson – CEO of Electronic Arts (EA) – has hinted that the game has chances to appear officially on mobile platform.

“We are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time,” said Andrew Wilson

There have been fake Apex Legends games on mobile platform, especially on Android smartphones. This proves that the demand of the gaming community for an mobile version of this game is really high. And it gets higher and higher every day since more and more people are playing this game lately. This game only needs one month to reach 50 million download milestone, while it took Fortnite more than four months to reach this milestone.

The competition between Fortnite and Apex Legends is always a hot topic

If the mobile version of Apex Legends is introduced, its primary targeted market would be China and India. These 2 countries have an incredibly large amount of gamers for PUBG mobile, as well as mobile gamers. Apex Legends mobile will gain huge success in these 2 markets, no doubt. Moreover, Tencent – the biggest gaming corporation in China – has already ignited negotiation with EA for distribution right of Apex Legends in China. This corporation is the owner of Arena of Valor – a very successful mobile MOBA game. If Tencent and EA can work out on this, we can believe that Apex Legends will have a bright future in China.

However, for now, there is no mobile version of Apex Legends. Other than the words of the CEO of EA, Respawn Entertainment has said nothing about this topic. So it looks like we will have to wait for quite a while for a mobile version of this bad boy. But at least we can wait with hope.
