Apex Legends Mobile to Shut Down in May

Apex Legends Mobile arrived on the mobile gaming scene with guns blazing back on May 17, 2022. Since then, the game has garnered millions of fans and earned a number of awards, including the Best Game and Users’ Choice awards in the 2022 Google Play Awards.

Apex Legends Mobile’s first year was a runaway success, mostly due to the regular updates which brought in exciting new features and unique mobile-exclusive Legends such as Fade and Rhapsody. Add those to the mobile-exclusive Legend Perks and you’ve got a mobile game that’s seriously starting to rival its namesake.

Everything was going so well until EA and Respawn announced the shocking news that defies all logic – Apex Legends Mobile is shutting down on May 1st, 2023.

We have outlined everything you need to know about Apex Legends Mobile’s shutdown in this article.

What Happened to Apex Legends Mobile?

There could be a number of internal reasons why EA and Respawn Entertainment suddenly decided to axe Apex Legends Mobile. However, EA and Respawn Entertainment say they made the mutual decision to shut down Apex Legends Mobile due to not being able to deliver the quality, quantity, and update cadence they aimed to deliver to Apex Legends Mobile fans.

This news is definitely a shocker, not just to fans of Apex Legends Mobile, but to other players who know about the success that Apex Legends Mobile achieved in just a few months.

Sure, the game had some minor bugs that needed fixing, but those are almost expected in a newly released mobile game such as Apex Legends Mobile and are not worth shutting down a highly-successful game.

Whatever the real reason is for EA and Repsawn’s decision to shut down Apex Legend’s mobile fork, nothing will change the fact that the game is set to disappear forever on May 1st, 2023.

When will Apex Legends Mobile shut down?

EA and Respawn Entertainment will shut down Apex Legends Mobile on May 1st, 2023 at 4 PM PDT. By that time, players from all regions will no longer be able to play the game at all.

Players are no longer be able to make in-game purchases starting January 31st, 2023, as the devs have disabled real money in-app purchases.

What can players expect from the Apex Legends Mobile shutdown?

As of January 31, 2023, EA and Respawn Entertainment have stopped all stopped real money purchases and have already removed Apex Legends Mobile from third-party webstores. Despite this, the devs say players can still spend their Syndicate Gold and play the game like normal up until before May 1st.

All in-game purchases can be used until May 1st, 2023 at 4 PM PDT, but players cannot get a refund for most of their in-game purchases that fall under the EA User Agreement.
