The publisher is also planning to bring Apex Legends to more platforms and new markets, expanding beyond the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This includes mobile devices like Android and iOS, as well as countries like China. However, they didn’t mention or confirm if it would possibly be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

More content will be released for Apex Legends with plans for long term service and new Legends, amongst other things. While the F2P model has proved to be a massive success, EA reassures that it won’t abandon premium $60 titles like Anthem or the upcoming Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.
In other recent news, a new mode is coming to Apex Legends, but no details have been revealed as of yet. It seems like players don’t have to worry about losing support for the battle royale game in the near future.
