The success of PUBG has got the attention of many game developers, who have been working to take advantage of the battle royale game trend. Some of them have done better than others and Electronic Arts’ Apex Legends is one example.
And now, this game is making its way to mobile gamers soon, following Fortnite and PUBG which has been rolled out to smartphones besides various other battle royale games. PUBG has been so successful among iOS and Android users in India mostly due to the fact that the game is free and easy to play.
Fortnite might have followed this if its developer Epic hadn’t decided not to share the profits with Google. So unlike PUBG, it has created a third-party app to bypass Google Play Store and wasn’t welcomed by many players.
However, Apex Legends can be a solid contender. Its developer is not only offering the game via an official channel, but the game is also great. At least that’s what we hope Respawn Entertainment can convert from the amazing console and PC version of the game.
Andrew Wilson, Chief Executive Officer at Electronic Arts, has confirmed that a mobile version of the game is under development. In his statement, Wilson said that the company is excited about Apex Legends’ future as there are big plans for the gamer to compete in the gaming world. He added that the firm is negotiating to launch the game in China and to mobile users with further information to be revealed once the negotiations are done.
Currently, Apex Legends has about 70 million PC and console players. And considering the success of PUBG Mobile, the timing for this plan is perfect because though consumers and developers are all over battle royale games now, that passion won’t last forever.
