Is Apex Legends available on console?

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It EA is looking at mobile version of Apex Legends (and cross-platform support)

EA does not live in a vacuum, however, and was expecting to rake in significantly more revenue for a much bigger profit-in October, the company had forecast $1.375 billion in revenue.

While this figure is 11 percent up on the 2017 figure, it underlines the extent to which EA is losing ground to competitors like Epic Games which owns Fortnite. This led to a year-on-year drop in net booking in mobile games of 23%. According to a statement from EA, these lower sales are a result of the company's "difficult window" regarding its launch, and "prioritizing the single-player campaign over battle royale". During the Q&A portion of a recent earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson suggested that while their data has found the feature isn't widely used by players, it still plans to utilize it-especially for franchises with big player bases like Federation Internationale de Football Association. Although the launch of the game was positively successful when compared to that of Fallout 76, which released shortly before, the game's release had its share of troubles.

That basically means you can have a unified friends list across Apex Legends and Steam - not having different users broken up across different platforms.

Though new battle royale games have occasionally been touted as the "PUBG killer" or "Fortnite killer", the individuality of them allow the games to retain their players amid new releases. When you, an adult, are learning new words from someone that clearly hasn't entered puberty yet, something is wrong.

During the call, Mike Ng from Goldman Sachs asked about the capacity if Respawn to launch three games in one year given we just had Apex Legends, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is already confirmed to be shipping later this year, and there's this "premium" Titanfall game that we've yet to hear about.

At this point, it's unclear what the future of Titanfall looks like.
