The most awaited game Apex Legends Mobile is officially confirmed about its release. The release of a mobile version of Respawan’s flagship battle royal title Apex Lengs is coming ever closer, with new details on the development of the handheld title revealed by EA in their third-quarter earnings call.
Now, the title’s publishers have confirmed in their Q3 report that they are working with a Chinese partner to “create a mobile Apex Legends that will be released globally“, as first reposted by industry insider and analyst Daniel Ahmad.
Developer locked, but no release date — yet
While that’s good news, EA has yet to deliver a proper release date, likely considering it’s so early in the partnership with the unnamed developer. Jorgensen added that there was “more to come on that in terms of timing” soon.
This isn’t the first time EA has turned to Chinese developers to bring to life mobile versions of their flagship titles either. The American gaming company published FIFA Online 4 and Need for Speed Online with Chinese conglomerate Tencent.
Tencent also owns Riot Games, who have developed titles like League of Legends and Legends of Runterra. The Chinese company also helms the biggest mobile title on the planet, Arena of Valor, and recently partnered with Activision to create a massively popular mobile version of FPS franchise Call of Duty.
Electronic Arts has confirmed they’re working with a partner in China to create a mobile Apex Legends that will be released globally. For reference. Activision worked with Tencent for Call of Duty Mobile. Blizzard partnered with NetEase for Diablo Immortal. pic.twitter.com/oCJzlsksi3— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) January 30, 2020
