Respawn announces it's delaying the regional launch due to "current world events."


Respawn Entertainment is delaying the launch of Apex Legends' mobile version until next week due to ongoing "current world events," which is most likely a reference to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The launch was supposed to take place today, February 28.

In a blog post, Respawn said the plan is to now launch Apex Legends Mobile on March 7 in select participating countries. These countries include Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia.
