Apex Legends edition for Nintendo Switch postponed to 2021
For players who own a Switch, sad news: before it was scheduled to be released later this year, the edition of Apex Legends for the Nintendo console has been postponed. According to Chad Grenier, director of the game, the studio needs more time to maximize the port of battle royale to the big-N console.
For those who play on the Nintendo Switch, we are still working hard on adapting, but to do the game justice and create the incredible experience that everyone who plays on the Switch deserves, our team needs more time.
The developer says only that the game will be released for the Switch in sometime next year, not giving an exact date for when this will occur. Despite this, cross-play between Nintendo console players and other platforms is still guaranteed.
Apex Legends is currently available for PC (via Origin and, soon, on Steam), Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the Nintendo Switch version only arrives in 2021, it is also expected to launch the game for the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S).
