Apex Legends Mobile is a mobile version of Electronic Arts’ popular battle royale game, Apex Legends. The mobile title was launched in 17 May 2022 and it was available for iOS and Android users.

Battlefield Mobile is a stand-alone mobile game that draws inspiration and gameplay from the Battlefield series of games. These mobile titles are less than a year old, but that didn’t stop Electronic Arts (EA) from pulling the plug.

Kotaku reports that EA will be shutting down Apex Legends Mobile and Battlefield Mobile. EA stated that the game had a successful launch, but the content produced failed to meet the studio’s standards in terms of quality and quantity. As a result, Respawn, EA, and its mobile development partner have made the decision to discontinue Apex Legends.

However, the shut down will not take place immediately. Players will still have around 90 days to play the game and it will remain fully playable until 1 May 2023. But players won’t be able to use real money to buy in-game items anymore and the game will also be removed from digital stores.

If you are looking to get your refunds, the answer is NOPE. If you are worried about Apex Legends on consoles and PC, Respawn said the game will continue as normal.

As a franchise, Apex Legends is strong and we’re looking forward to sharing exciting updates in the future.

For Battlefield Mobile, EA indicated that the gaming industry has changed and as a result, their plans for the military first-person shooter franchise have shifted. They will alter their approach in order to more effectively realize their vision for the franchise.

EA also confirmed that they are already working on the next instalment of the Battlefield franchise, which is in pre-production, and they are continue working on Battlefield 2042. The developer behind Battlefield Mobile, Industrial Toys, will be shutting down as well.

This title was only available in Malaysia last November, and it never even made it out of the open beta stage.
