Electronic Arts (EA) announced that Apex Legends Mobile is sunsetting on May 1, 2023.

In a blog post, developer Respawn Entertainment said the content pipeline for Apex Legends Mobile fell short of the bar for quality, quantity, and cadence they are expecting, leading them to decide to shut down the game.

The 90-day window before the game will sunset started at 1 p.m. PST, January 31st (5 a.m., February 1 in Philippine time). During this time, real money in-app purchases in the game are disabled. The game will also be removed from webstores. Additionally, players can continue to spend their existing Syndicate Gold and continue playing the full game.

For players who made purchases in the game, EA will not be issuing any real money refunds, as per the terms of the EA User Agreement. For other refund requests, they can contact the third-party platforms where the purchase was made, such as the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Respawn, however, has not totally closed the window on Apex Legends Mobile, adding that the game could return in the future, in one form or another.
