EA's Apex Legends Mobile game will be shut down on May 1, 2023. The game, launched eight months ago, had a strong start, but the content pipeline failed to meet EA's expectations. As a result, the partner studio Respawn and Tencent parted ways, and the title will be shut down. The in-game microtransactions for Apex Legends Mobile have already been turned off, and no refunds for in-game purchases will be provided. This move does not affect the main game Apex Legends, on PC and console, which will continue to be available.
