With Apex Legends being immediately available to download and play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, many players have found themselves wondering whether the game has cross-platform support. Additionally, others have been asking whether Apex Legends will release on Nintendo Switch or mobile platforms.
To help answer your questions regarding Apex Legends, we’ve put together a quick guide on whether or not there’s cross-platform support in Apex Legends.
Is There Cross-Platform Support in Apex Legends?
The short answer to whether or not cross-platform support is available in Apex Legends is no, it’s not. As of the time of this writing, there’s no cross-platform support in Apex Legends regardless of which version you download and play. Addressing the possibility of adding cross-play in the future, Respawn Entertainment told Eurogamer:
“Respawn plans to allow players to play with their friends on other platforms. Cross-progress and cross-purchases will never be possible in Apex Legends due to the way systems were set up early on, which can’t be reconciled after the fact.”
As such, you can expect some form of cross-platform support to be added to Apex Legends in the future, though in a limited capacity. Meanwhile, for those wondering whether Apex Legends will ever release on Nintendo Switch or mobile, lead producer Drew McCoy noted that they’d “love to bring Apex Legends to mobile and Switch.”
Although, he went on to specify that there’s “nothing they can currently talk about” regarding the possible release of Apex Legends on mobile and Nintendo Switch platforms. Until more information becomes available, players should take comfort in the fact that there are plans to add cross-platform support to Apex Legends.
Additionally, Respawn is not opposed to a mobile and/or Nintendo Switch release in the future.

Are you looking forward to the addition of cross-platform support, or are you saddened to hear that it’ll only be available in a limited capacity? Let us know down in the comments below!
