Apex Legends had a remarkably successful launch, managing to snag over 10 million players and rocket to the top of Twitch viewership in the week it launched. The game may grow even larger, though, if EA’s plans for it come to fruition.
As EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed in a recent investors call (via TechSpot), the company wants to create a mobile version of Apex Legends and figure out a way to make cross-play compatible on all devices.
“As I said earlier, we are looking at how to take the game to mobile and cross-play over time,” Wilson said. “And I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we’re in conversations about that.”
Both Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, top contenders in the battle royale space, have mobile versions that proved to be incerdibly successful. Apex Legends is more graphically intensive than either of those two, but even a downgraded version made to run on mobile devices could be incredibly popular.
Apex Legends is currently free-to-play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
