EA announces that it will no longer publish Apex Legends Mobile and that it will not be releasing Battlefield Mobile as well.
Until Apex Legends Mobile reaches its end of life and is no longer available for download, all in-game purchases will not be accessible.
Statement of EA regarding existing players
The developer highlighted that it is pleased with the released product and expressed gratitude to the Apex Legends Mobile fanbase.
EA’s plans to develop a single-player game in the Titanfall/Apex universe, as well as additional Titanfall content within Apex Legends, are in addition to the game’s success on PC and console, where it has become one of the company’s most lucrative sources of revenue.
They believe that is the best choice for the players.
At Respawn, we aim to provide players with games that are consistently outstanding.
Following a strong start, the content pipeline for Apex Legends Mobile has begun to fall short of that bar for quality, quantity, and cadence.
It is for this reason, after months of working with our development partner, that we have made the mutual decision to sunset our mobile game.”Respawn Entertainment
After 90 days, on May 1, 2023, the game servers will permanently close down.
Apex Legends Mobile will no longer be available on mobile platforms, and today Respawn is also closing the game’s real-money in-game store.
All features and content will be accessible for the next 90 days.
For any in-game purchases made throughout the game’s eight-month lifespan, neither EA nor Respawn will issue a refund.
Here’s what you need to do
Virtual currency balances will remain in your account and be usable for in-game purchases until May 1, 2023, at 4 PM PDT.
During the ninety (90) day period, you can keep using all of your previously purchased and acquired in-game items.
Moreover, you can no longer purchase all content for the game via the Apex Legends Mobile Web Site, and access to the store itself will be down.
The switch will have no effect on playing Apex Legends on a PC or console.
This choice is unique to the mobile version and has nothing to do with the PC or console versions of Apex Legends.
No worries, Apex Legends’ Global Series events are still coming this year around.
