Respawn Entertainment’s shooter battle royale Apex Legends is getting cross-progression support next year. In a Reddit AMA, when asked about the timeline for cross-progression, Ryan Rigney, Director of Communication at Respawn answered, “Next year.”
“Cross progression is gnarly as hell in terms of being a problem to solve. It’s not only that you have to solve the technical challenge of merging existing accounts, but there are also legal and contractual issues to navigate with purchasing on other platforms. Different regions have different laws. It’s a mess. But we’re working on it, and we’re committed to delivering it,” he said.
Apex Legends currently supports cross-platform play
The game currently supports cross-platform play between Switch, PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Although the game can be played on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 via backwards compatibility, Respawn is working on developing the game for next-generation consoles.
In the same AMA, Ryan says “Oh man, I WISH I had an update to share but we can’t say anything definitive at the moment—so can’t spoil anything here. Trust us tho, it’s in the works and we’re excited about it too.”
Along with cross-progression and a next-gen version of the game, fans will also be looking forward to Apex Legends Mobile that will be available on Android and iOS devices.
