Apex Legends Mobile is shutting down 1 year after release

Apex Legends Mobile

Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment announced they’re shutting down Apex Legends Mobile.

The free-to-play smartphone spinoff game will shut down on May 1st, after which it’ll no longer be playable.

The game was originally launched for iOS (via the App Store) and Android (via Google Play) back in May 2022.

Here’s the word from Respawn Entertainment:

Apex Legends Mobile shutdown notice

We have made the painful decision to sunset Apex Legends Mobile.

This decision does not come with ease. Factors beyond our control have prevented us from maintaining the high-quality experience and content that our players deserve.

As a result, the game will sunset on May 1, 2023 at 4pm PDT after which it will no longer be playable.

Our gratitude to our players and teams for joining us on ALM, even if for a short while, is unending. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
