When will players see the test version of the Apex Legends mobile version?
At the end of 2019, Electronic Arts has officially announced launching a mobile version of Apex Legends. In many shared posts, Blake Jorgensen, CFO of Electronic Arts, announced that they are planning to launch Apex Legends Mobile in 2021.
At the same time, Electronic Arts was still looking for a producer and executive for Apex Legends Mobile. Among Chinese game companies, Tencent is the brightest name for them to choose and almost Shenzhen-based game company will “bid” on the deal.
Electronic Arts’ CFO also said that to deploy a mobile game in China, you must have a partner in this country. So we are working with a partner there to develop Apex Legends Mobile version. However, EA has not been able to reveal the name yet. But there are some evidences to claim that 99% is Tencent Games. Unfortunately, There is the Covid-19 Virus pandemic in China, affecting heavily the gaming industry. Most likely the production of this game will be interrupted for a quite long time.
In recent times, Tencent Games have shown interest in creating a mobile version of popular titles, and they have targeted Apex Legends for a long time. The desire to release this mobile version as they did with PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty: Mobile is always the permanent intention of the company. But with the ongoing pandemic covid-19, it is difficult for the Chinese game company to quickly implement its plans.
Not only Apex Legends Mobile project is affected, game companies and many other products also have to “standstill” to wait for the situation to cool down. When Will players see the test version of the Apex Legends mobile version?
