Apex Legends is already hugely popular on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and now it’s coming to a new platform and a new market. As part of publisher Electronic Arts’ earnings report today, CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that a mobile version of the battle royale game is in the works, while EA is also in “advanced negotiations” to launch Apex Legends in China.
“We are hugely excited about the future of Apex Legends … Engagement is strong, and we have big plans for the Legends and the world they compete in,” Wilson said. “We’re in advanced negotiations to bring Apex Legends to China and to mobile, and we will update you on time frames when those negotiations are concluded.”
In his prepared remarks, Wilson noted that Apex Legends is the “fastest-growing” title in EA’s history. By EA’s latest count, the game reached 50 million players. He also noted that almost 30 percent of Apex Legends players are “new to EA,” which is good news for the publisher.
“We’re incredibly excited and humbled by the passion that fans around the world have for Apex Legends,” Wilson said. “We’re now very focused on delivering for this massive global community with a long-term live service, including new seasons with more robust Battle Pass content, new legends, and exciting evolutions to the in-game environment.”
It’s only just the beginning for Apex Legends, Wilson said. The first details about the game’s Season 2 will be announced at the EA Play event in June, Wilson teased.
