Rumors have been floating around left and right for the past year or so about when Apex Legends was going to make it to the Nintendo Switch. We got a notice in the summer of 2020 that it may come with the Steam launch, but that never happened. That said, we finally got some clarity on the subject today.
Apex Legends will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on February 2, along with the release of the new season, Season 8: Mayhem.
While this information was not given out on the English iteration of the Apex Legends YouTube, it was in a plethora of the translations: including Japanese, Russian and Danish. This is most likely due to the developers deciding they wanted to keep the release a secret, but after they already gave the original announcement over to their translation team.
The information was later removed, indicating that this info was released too early, and was in fact a slip-up, but that doesn’t change that the cat’s out of the bag. It wouldn’t surprise us if we got the official announcement in the coming week. There is always the possibility the removal could be because the release was delayed again, but there is no direct indication of that.
There is no word yet on if there will be cross-progression added, but if it is, it will likely only be between Switch, Steam and Origin for the time being. Hopefully more information will be revealed soon.
