In what seems to be a necessity at this point, Apex Legends is coming to iOS and Android platforms, as reported by industry analyst and inside Daniel Ahmad on Twitter. He didn’t reveal that much information about the mobile port, but did mention that Electronic Arts (EA) is working with a partner in China to create a mobile Apex Legends for global release. I mean, it’s about time. Fortnite and PUBG, their biggest competition have already been on mobile for a while now and safe to say, they’re booming.
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

He goes on to add that Tencent is the likely the partner EA is working with on the title. This is because the publisher teamed up with Tencent to publish FIFA Online and Need For Speed Online. Not to mention Tencent also worked on Call of Duty Mobile with Activision, so they’ve got experience in the first person shooter platform. Oh, and they worked on another battle royale game, don’t know if you’ve heard of it, PUBG Mobile?
Safe to say they’re the most likely candidate for the job. To me, anyway.
The mobile port announcement comes in on the same day that Apex Legends released their pretty dark Season Four trailer for their new hero. Revenant is a cyborg assassin who looks creepy as f***, and he arrives to the game on February 4th with the new season.
