The American company uncovers its plans and says that Apex Legends is the fastest growing game in its catalog of new titles.
Electronic Arts wants everyone to play Apex Legends, even those who prefer to play from their cell phones. On the afternoon of Tuesday, May 7, in the middle of a call with investors, Blake Jorgensen, a senior EA executive, said he is in talks to create a version of Apex Legends for mobile devices.
The success of Apex Legends has given EA an oxygen ball that they want to make the most of, despite the fall of audiences on Twitch. After passing through PS4, Xbox One and PC, the US giant reveals the “advanced negotiations” to launch the game in new markets and platforms, which includes versions for mobile devices.
In what areas will it be available?
Although at the moment there are no more details about it, they have confirmed that the new regions will be Korea and China, The executive did not mention a specific date for the disembarkation of Apex in mobiles. EA also said that the game will soon reach China and in the near future South Korea. Fortnite and PUBG, two rival Apex games, have already been on iOS and Android for several months, although Tencent has been forced to withdraw PUBG from the latter country.
According to the company, this free-to-play battle royale has become the fastest growing game in its history, having exceeded 50 million players in just two months. During the presentation of the financial results, the company has also explained that Apex Legends has managed to attract 30% of new players to Origin, its PC platform.
New content is coming
Given these positive results, the new production of Respawn Entertainment plans to continue adding new features in a season format, which includes “improved Battle Pass content”, new characters and other “exciting evolutions”. EA is expected to detail the contents of the second season at its EA Play event, which will be held in parallel with the E3 in Los Angeles.
In addition to Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment works on Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, a third-person adventure centered on the narrative that will be set right after Emperor Palpatine dictates the controversial Order 66, which orders his followers to end all Jedi Knights. At the moment, there is no information about a possible new delivery of Titanfall, beyond which the studio has left its plans until further notice.
