Why is Apex Legends Mobile shutting down?

Farewell Apex Mobile, you will be missed.

In a development update for Apex Legends Mobile, Respawn Entertainment and EA announced that they have decided to sunset the mobile game. Apex Legends Mobile is scheduled to sunset on May 1, 2023. Here's what you need to know about Apex Legends Mobile shutting down.

When will Apex Legends Mobile shut down?

As stated by the developers in the official blog, Apex Legends Mobile will be available to play until May 1, 2023, after which the game will be removed from all regions. The blog highlighted that the decision behind Apex Legends Mobile's sunset is platform-specific. It also mentions that despite a brilliant start, the content has fallen short of the bar, which is why Apex Legends Mobile will shut down permanently.

Naturally, fans are disappointed as Apex Legends Mobile featured some unique characters like Fade and Rhapsody. These characters were never seen before and were only designed for the mobile version of Apex Legends. The mobile fps title also had various modes where you could participate outside the traditional battle royale and even included the third-person perspective. Apex Legends Mobile also introduced the perk and loadout system, allowing customization options for Legend abilities.
