Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that Apex Legends Mobile will end service on May 1, less than a year since it launched on May 17, 2022, and will no longer be playable afterwards. The companies state that this is a result of “Factors beyond our control.” For now, Apex Legends Mobile is available for iOS and Android devices.
We have made the decision to sunset Apex Legends Mobile.

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 4:00 p.m. PT after which it will no longer be playable.
Our gratitude to our players and teams for joining us on Apex Legends Mobile, even if for a short while, is unending. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you
