We're already into Season 7 and still, we see no sign of the Switch port for Apex Legends.
For now, let's run through everything we know about the upcoming version.
Keep reading to find out things such as release date, price, comments from the Game Director and more!
Apex Legends On Nintendo Switch
For many in the Apex Legends community, the prospect of taking the title on the go is a bright one.
Many games such as Fortnite, Overwatch and more have made their way to Nintendo's console.
So what's stopping Respawn doing the same? Let's take a look...
According to multiple Apex Legends accounts, the game will arrive on Switch on the 2nd February - when Season 8 starts.
That date is corroborated by a mention in recent trailers that was subsequently removed, as per VGC.
Game Director Comments On Release Date
Through an EA blog post, Apex Legends Game Director, Chad Grenier, addressed the situation.
Grenier said "For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time."
"This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out."
"Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year."
"And of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game."
"We can’t wait to get Apex Legends into your hands (or your TV-connected dock) on Switch."
We expect the Switch port to follow suit and be available to play for free.
Though we imagine that they will likely make different editions available such as:
- Champion Edition
- Pathfinder Edition
- Octane Edition
- Lifeline & Bloodhound Edition
- Lifeline Edition
- Bloodhound Edition
Currently most of the editions including one legend run at about £17.99.
They'll likely cost the same if not a bit more on the Switch due to a new release.
So far we haven't gotten a glimpse of Switch gameplay yet.
When Respawn decides to share gameplay with us we'll be sure to update this piece!
We're hoping for more news soon, but with the current COVID-19 pandemic many companies are struggling to be efficient.
When the game does eventually land on Switch, there's good news for existing fans - it'll support Cross-Play, meaning you'll be able to play with friends on multiple platforms.
Recent leaks even suggested that Cross Progression could also be coming to the popular shooter, although Respawn hasn't commented yet.
