Apex will face some tough competition on mobile as PUBG mobile, COD mobile, and Fortnite have all carved a stake in the mobile battle royale market. Apex Legends is currently celebrating its 3rd anniversary (see here) and released a new legend, Mad Maggie. This has led to it reaching a new record number of players on Steam.
The mobile release of Apex Legends will be the next step for the battle royale game. If this soft launch is successful, we may see a full launch before the end of the year. The only thing left to add to the is cross-progression across all devices.
