Apex Legends was an instant success in just days of its debut. It is a battle royale themed game which feels quite similar to PUBG or Fortnite but has its own unique twists and elements to it. However, there are two major demands that the fans have: a smartphone version of the game, and cross-platform support.
Apex Legends’ Project Lead Drew McCoy commented on the game getting cross-platform support during an interview with WIRED. Here’s a closer look.
Apex Legends Cross-Platform Support: What The Devs Say
Drew McCoy stated that while he cannot comment on the game’s plans for the future, he pointed out that the developers are aware of the growing demand for cross-platform support. He said that the devs understand that people have friends who use other consoles and that they are ‘looking into it.’
Here’s his exact comment:
“Cross-play is something we really care about and are looking into…We know that people have friends on all sorts of platforms and that you really want to go to the arena and get some wins together, so stay tuned.”

When Will Apex Legends for Mobile Release for Android/iOS?
As of this writing, there are no answers from the developers when it comes to a mobile version of Apex Legends. However, most popular battle royale themed games come out first for the consoles and then for the mobile. Given the history of battle royale games, we expect at least one quarter to pass before we get to see Apex Legends for Mobile.
Given that the game released on the 4th of February for Consoles, Apex Legends for Mobile is unlikely to release anytime before May-June 2019. It will either be later Q2 or early Q3. Stay tuned.
