The latest entry of reputed battle royale, Apex Legends which was launched on February 4, 2019, for PC, PS4 and the Xbox which shook the world of Battle Royale segment.
The game, developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts is being considered as the next big thing after Fortnite and PUBG. Cross-platform play for the game is also in development.
Many people consider that Apex Legends has just created a hype that will slowing down with the time in the coming months. But, it does not seem to have brakes at all.
One of the main things we have to look at is the fact that Electronic Arts are deciding to go the route Epic Games did with Fortnite and that is to allow cross-platform play between mobile and other consoles. PUBG, on the other hand, works on a separate basis which is a much better mobile-optimized game for Android and IOS.
Initially, it was contemplated that the mobile version of Fortnite will be taking over the battle royale market in mobile as well as it has done in the console and PC versions. That did not happen.
Cross-Platform Could Be The Reason
If a cross-platform version for Apex Legends in mobile will be developed, the specifications that the game will demand will also be really high. This will eliminate a huge mass of players especially from India and South East Asia where mediocre phones are the trend.
