EA has provided an official update on the state of Battle Royale game Apex Legends for the Nintendo Switch on their website. The company has unfortunately decided to delay the game on the hybrid platform until next year. Chad Grenier, who is the Game Director for Apex Legends, explained that they are still hard at work on the game, but admits that this year has understandably brought with it major challenges and they fully want to do Apex Legends justice on the system, rather than rush it out to meet the 2020 release window. Mr. Grenier says that Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch supports cross-platform play, features the latest seasonal content, and will have full feature parity with the other versions of the game. Here’s what he wrote on EA’s site:
“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.”
