The Release Date For Apex Legends Mobile Has Been Announced

Not too long ago, EA and Respawn Entertainment announced they'd be following in the footsteps of the Battle Royale competitors and releasing a mobile version of Apex Legends (thought hopefully not with the legal battle and Apple feud that came with Fortnite Mobile). Well, they've just officially revealed the release date for the game, and it's coming up! Apex Legends Mobile will come out on May 17th!

The game has been developed in a collaboration between its original developer, Respawn, and Tencent-owned Lightspeed & Quantum Studios - which, oddly enough, also developed PUBG Mobile. Kinda seems like cheating when you just have the same people who made your competitor's game make yours? Oh well.

The game will be released on both Android and iOS. Here are the technical spec required to run Apex Mobile:

Apex Legends Mobile Android minimum requirements
  • Snapdragon 435/ Hisilicon Kirin 650/ Mediatek Helio P20/ Exynos 7420

Respawn recently released a statement discussing this approach to developing the mobile version of their game:

“We’ve built this game from the ground up with mobile-first optimisations and mobile exclusive content to make sure that the game feels like Apex while also fresh and new at the same time.

“To do that, we’re starting with 10 Legends out of the gate, with favourites like Wraith, Octane, Bloodhound and Pathfinder.

“We’re taking players back to classic World’s Edge and Kings Canyon, and of course we’re adding some twists to excite old school fans as well.

“We do have mobile exclusive game modes, we do have new ways to play with your friends, and new ways to invest in and explore the world of Apex Legends.”
