The Mobile version of Apex Legends comes to a close as EA announces its shutdown on May 1st, 2023. The electrifying and fast-paced title that graced the screens of both Android and iOS devices will no longer be available for play. A decline in the game’s quality, quantity, and cadence was cited as the reason behind this sudden shutdown by the team behind the mobile version, Respawn Entertainment and EA.

On January 31st, 2023, the lights were turned off on the in-app purchases, and the game was removed from the App Store and Google Play Store. While players can still spend in-game money on items, all Syndicate Gold will become worthless after the shutdown at 4 p.m. PDT on May 1st. Regrettably, EA has made it clear that no refunds will be given for real money purchases.

The closure of Apex Legends Mobile comes as a surprise to its dedicated fanbase, who expected the game to continue thriving on mobile devices. Nevertheless, this shutdown will have no impact on the PC version of the game, as no official statement has been released by EA or Respawn.

As the sun sets on Apex Legends Mobile, fans bid farewell to a title that brought the excitement and adrenaline of the PC version to their fingertips. The shutdown may mark the end of the mobile journey, but the legend of Apex lives on.
