Apex Legends Comes to Steam in November, Switch Delayed to 2021

We were looking forward to going hands-on with handheld Apex this year, but sadly, we're going to have to wait a little longer.

EA has provided an official update on the state of Battle Royale game Apex Legends for the Nintendo Switch on their website. Unfortunately, there's still not yet any word on the mobile version of the game and the news is even worse for other console games: the Apex Legends Nintendo Switch version won't launch in 2020.

Coming from publisher EA and Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends is set to follow Fortnite in bringing a major battle royale experience to Nintendo Switch.

When it does launch, it'll have full feature parity with all other versions of the game. And for Apex Legends, that means the Halloween event Fight or Fright is now live! One common theory is that the vehicles may be on rails, similar to the train, rather than being drivable for players to freely traverse the map. Best of all, existing players on Origin will be able to transfer over all of their progress.

Respawn Entertainment will also be launching three exclusive gun charms inspired by Valve games.

Look out for Apex Legends on Switch sometime next year.

For players trying to jump into game, you'll have to wait, as Apex Legends servers are now down due to a widespread outage. The groundwork for this was placed a few weeks back with a cross-platform multiplayer patch and now, we have an official release date for the Steam version.
